The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics has state-of-the-art facilities used for both research and teaching. Equipment in the various laboratories is continuously updated to expose our students to the newest technologies and illustrate the most important concepts in mechanical engineering.
Some of the facilities include an engine testing lab, a wind tunnel, water channels, computer labs, manufacturing and machining facilities, and much more. All students are encouraged to gain hands on experience in the shops and labs. Several of the courses available to the undergraduate students have curriculums that include the use of the computer labs, the manufacturing and machining facilities, the wind tunnel, and other equipment.
Please browse through the various facility sites to learn about their equipment and uses. Interested persons are encouraged to visit our laboratory facilities. Arrangements can be made to tour a specific laboratory facility by contacting the faculty member designated in the appropriate laboratory web page or simply stopping by the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Department Offices in Packard Laboratory (pictured below).
