The Laboratory

Engineering education is incomplete without laboratory practice. The overall goal of engineering education is to prepare students to practice engineering and in particular to deal with the nature of problems faced by society. The laboratory practice has been an important part of professional and engineering undergraduate education; a laboratory is an ideal place for active learning. Students learn in a real-world environment, function as team members, discuss the planning of experiments, and share ideas about the analysis and interpretation of data. Most engineering instruction took place in the laboratory and it demands the active use of knowledge and skill.
