Assets And Services

The College's Advanced Materials Engineering Research (AMER) Lab is dedicated to the use of polymer and biodegradable materials and advanced manufacturing technologies.

Visualization, Informatics, Simulation

Advanced Process Control & Optimization Lab - state-of-the-art simulation, advanced control, communication and optimization software packages in addition to up to date and industrial scale hardware. // Distributed Control System Lab - main focus of research is on the design, operate and control of bench to large scale complex processes. This lab is equipped with various industrial and research hardware and software including DeltaV, Foxboro and Experion systems. Various control structure are designed and examined in this lab for training and research purposes. // Instrumentation Lab - This facility contains many state-of-the-art technical training and research facilities dedicated to the study of instrumentation necessary for the high-tech petrochemical and power industries as well as many others. In this lab, researchers and students will use the technical skills and knowledge to carry out maintenance, make a diagnosis, configure, calibrate and maintain various measurements and indicating instrumentation (pneumatic, analog, digital, etc.) in a variety of replicated industrial settings. All are available for research testing of industrial control systems in fully realistic industrial settings. // Process Simulation Lab - The process simulation lab has capacity to perform two type of simulation: industrial and advanced theoretical. Industrial simulation software uses Honeywell hardware and software with approximately 1000 input/output channels. Advanced theoretical simulation utilizes various software applications, including gProms, ProDyn, GPS-X Pro and Matlab/Simulink. // PLC Autoamtion Lab - training as well as research activities on Logic and PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) control. Major equipment in this Lab includes, 13 PLC Training Stations Allen Bradley 5000, Control Logix Software, 13 Panel View HMI, 1 KOYO PLC and C-More HMI, Indusoft SCADA software, various communication software and multiple fabricated process system units. This lab has been used for various applied research projects in the water and energy sector on designing and implementing the PLC systems. // Robotics Lab - This lab has six CRS F3 Robotic Arms. It is here where researchers and students work on how to utilize these arms for various applications. They are specifically programming the codes and configuring the data acquisition and communication.
