Engineering Materials Laboratory

Students are able to conduct various experimental tests to measure the mechanical properties of materials such as metals (steel, copper, aluminium) and plastics. The universal tensile test machine in addition to Brinell, Rockwell, and Ultra sonic test machines are all available to perform the needed tests on materials. An oven torch, Microscope and high quality printer are also found.

Metal Shaping Laboratory

Students are able to conduct experimental work on the lathe and the milling machines. Those machines are used for processes such as turning, chamfering, Drilling and Threading. Other experiments related to casting using open and closed molds are carried out during the course of the semester.

Computer Aided Design Laboratory

CAD (computer-aided design) software “Solidworks” is used to create precision drawings or technical illustrations, and can be used to design and manufacture products as prototypes. CAD is a form of computer technology that assists in the drawing and technical drafting of products. CAM works alongside CAD—using CAD designs, CAM uses numerical coding to run the machine that creates the product.

Computer Numerical Control Laboratory

CAM is a subsequent computer-aided process after computer-aided design (CAD) and sometimes computer-aided engineering (CAE), as the model generated in CAD and verified in CAE can be input into CAM software, which then controls the machine tool. CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers and grinders. The operator will use programmable language called G code to input desired project dimensions and work conditions. This information is relayed to the CNC machine's integrated computer system as work instructions that control the machining process. These machines can be used for specialized and complex applications, including engraving and die sinking, or making impressions in die blocks.
