materials lab

The EMEC is an instructional and practical laboratory used to support scheduled classes and experiential laboratory sessions for undergraduate learning in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Students receive instruction, and work on sanctioned projects and manufacturing activities including senior engineering design practicum endeavors. Mechanical Engineering instructional laboratory equipment and research activities of the Department of Mechanical Engineering faculty and graduate students are also supported in the EMEC.  Metal casting, welding and fabrication, polymers and composites molding and forming, and CNC machining are featured processes of the EMEC.  Two full-time instructors as well as several Mechanical Engineering work-study employees (laboratory assistants) staff the EMEC.
