Instructional Labs

The College of Engineering’s state-of-the-art interdisciplinary Instructional Laboratories occupy 23,000 sq. ft. of newly-renovated space and span all programs in the College. The Instructional Labs facilitate a hands-on learning experience for students in lab-based courses and for other lab-based projects including those in Capstone Design and for Undergraduate Research.


The Materials Testing and Heat Transfer Laboratoryin Driftmier 1301 contains equipment for tension/compression testing, motor/torque/fatigue testing, heat transfer demonstration, and beam bending experiments. This lab supports a variety of courses offered in mechanical and biochemical engineering.

The Systems Simulation Laboratoryin Driftmier 1304 is a computer-based classroom with collaborative and teaching space containing advanced workstations with design and simulation software. This lab supports programming and design courses across disciplines within the College.

The Systems Design Laboratoryin Driftmier 1310 is another computer-based classroom with advanced workstations with design and simulation software. This lab also supports programming, design, and simulation courses across disciplines within the College.

The Mechanical, Thermal, and Fluid Systems Laboratory在Driftmier 1311包括工具和设备,包括泵,液压(机器和水),流量测量工具,以及更多,以支持我们所有的工程学生在先进的实验室基础工程课程的介绍学习。

The Environmental and Biological Systems Laboratoryin Driftmier 1314 contains a variety of tools and equipment to measure water quality, perform biological reactions and fermentations, and much more. This Lab supports courses in biological, biochemical, environmental, and agricultural engineering.

The Tissue Culture Laboratoryoffers all-new capabilities for the College. The Lab is located in Driftmier 1314A and facilitates advanced biological and biochemical experimentation giving students hands-on experience growing, isolating, and processing bacterial and mammalian cells.

The Design and Discovery Labin Driftmier 1350 is an open-access space for all students to utilize for collaborative class projects, Capstone projects, and research projects. Resources in the Lab include presentation tools, graphics workstations, a large collaborative space, vented soldering stations, and 3D printing and digitizing (2D and 3D) capabilities. Presentation tools include wireless-enabled projection, a smart podium, and markerboards.

The Process Automation Laboratoryin Driftmier 1355 houses a variety of automation equipment for students to learn how to program PLCs and other controllers for robots, conveyors, drones, actuators and much more. This lab also supports design and research projects for mechanical, electrical, and computer systems engineering students.

The Measurement Systems LaboratoryDriftmier 1361包括先进光学和光子学实验、机械系统测试/校准、显微镜和3D对象可视化和数字化的基础设施和设备。该实验室支持机械、电气、生物医学和计算机系统工程的课程。

The Biochemical Processes Laboratoryin Driftmier 1367 supports experimentation for biochemical, biological, electrical, and mechanical engineering courses with equipment for chemical reactions, process control and sensing, and chemical preparation and analysis. This lab along with the Tissue Culture and Environmental and Biological Systems Labs share a dual chemical hood and chemical storage room.
