The Manufacturing Processes (MP) Laboratory provides students with the opportunity to study and practice manufacturing processes. This lab provides students experiential learning with the nature and technique of manufacturing processes. Students can set up and operate machines, manufacture parts, measure process variables, and inspect manufactured parts. Skills acquired from time in the lab are integrated with prior and subsequent learning of other engineering topics such as engineering materials and quality planning and control.
The MP Lab is also instrumental for research needs—not only in the research of manufacturing processes but other facets of engineering as well. Students and faculty can utilize the facility for research as well as for the fabrication of research equipment and experiments.
