The Instrumentation Lab is a teaching laboratory. Currently the lab is used for the Measurements and Instrumentation Laboratory course (EGR 458) taught to senior-level mechanical engineering students. The purpose of the lab is to teach students how to acquire measurements from a mechanical system and how to use instrumentation and sensors for making these measurements. Additionally, the lab also serves to provide computational resources for mechanical engineering projects.
