Computational Methods Laboratory

Student working on a computer

The Computational Methods Laboratory allows students to perform computer aided modeling, design, simulation, and analysis relevant to the mechanical and manufacturing engineering disciplines.  This lab also has access to advanced software tools for analysis including structural mechanics, acoustics, and fluid structure interactions problems.

Students are introduced to this laboratory in the Computational Methods in Engineering (MME 213) course where they learn to utilize computational tools to solve problems of engineering design and analysis. This course forms a foundation for the integrated computational methods education in the MME curricula.  This laboratory is also a resource to the  MME department and its students and is actively utilized by students for computationally oriented projects.  These projects are conducted as part of the curricular requirements including Senior Capstone.
