Facilities

Because our majors benefit from hands-on experiences to to assist in their learning, they need up-to-date labs and research facilities. Each department maintains and updates its learning facilities to provide real-world and technology experiences for their students. In addition, certain labs were created to focus on one type of research, led by faculty in the department.

The Materials Lab provides customers testing and evaluation of hardware and seals under exposure to Next-Generation Aviation fuels. The Materials lab also offers the capability for facilitation of off-site testing and data interpretation.
