Laboratories

The Department’s laboratories have been updated with new equipment with a large range of teaching, research, and test equipment in the fields of heat engines and vehicle technology, engineering materials science, applied dynamics and machine elements, heat transfer and combustion, refrigeration and air conditioning, flexible manufacturing, metrology, solar energy, fluid power, and fluid flow, and non-destructive testing (NDT). In addition, there are extensive facilities for teaching workshop technology, and for the manufacture of specialized equipment, including both vertical and horizontal CNC machine centers, and an EDM machine. CAD (computer-aided design) facilities are also available.

Below are the classification of our labs:

Manufacturing Process Laboratory

State-of-the-art facilities that provide assistance for all manufacturing engineering courses, including casting, tool design, conventional and unconventional machining, etc.

Thermodynamics Laboratory

The laboratory focuses on the fields relevant to fundamental experiments in thermodynamics, such as temperature and pressure measurement, heat engines and work transfer devices, and thermodynamic cycles.

Heat Transfer

The lab facilitates the comprehension of heat transfer mechanisms, heat exchangers, vapor compression refrigerators, air conditioners, and other related concepts for undergraduate students.

Material Science & Engineering

Materials testing enables us to assess and comprehend whether a material or product is suitable for a specific application.

Fluid Mechanics

The fluid mechanics laboratory serves to showcase the concepts and quantify flow parameters for the purpose of designing and analyzing a specific flow scenario

Theory of Machines

This laboratory offers a diverse range of experiments with mechanism models, gear boxes, governors, gyroscopes, balancing machines, and other equipment.

Workshop

The workshop aims to educate undergraduates about machining and offer a dedicated area for product development. Students gain both theoretical understanding and practical experience in various machining processes utilizing equipment such as Lathe, Milling, Shaper, Planer, Drilling, Grinding, Welding, and more. Below are different machines we currently have in our workshop.

Lathe Machine

A lathe is a machine tool that rotates a workpiece about an axis of rotation to perform various operations such as cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, deformation, facing, threading and turning, with tools that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about that axis.

Milling Machine

A milling machine is an industrial machine tool that creates a part by removing material from a stationary workpiece with rotary cutting tools. A milling machine is the main type of equipment used for milling, a subtractive manufacturing process, that can be controlled manually or with Computer Numerical Control (CNC).

Shaper Machine

Application of Shaper machines include: Internal splines are made with a shaper machine; It makes straight and flat planes in horizontal, vertical, or angle; It can also make teeth for gears; Pulleys or gears can be made with keyways in these machines; It also makes shapes that are convex, concave or a mix of the two.

Planer Machine

The most common applications of planers and shapers are linear-toolpath ones, such as: Generating accurate flat surfaces. (While not as precise as grinding, a planer can remove a tremendous amount of material in one pass with high accuracy.) Cutting slots (such as keyways).

Surface Grinding Machine

Applications include: Precision grinding of flat surfaces on materials like steel, aluminum and other metals; Creation of smooth and accurate finishes on workpieces used in various industrial applications; Production of components with tight tolerances, critical in industries such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing.

Drilling Machine

Drills are commonly used in woodworking, metalworking, construction, machine tool fabrication, construction and utility projects. Specially designed versions are made for miniature applications.
