The Material Testing Lab helps students develop a thorough understanding of different types of materials and their properties. Students conduct experimental investigations to analyse the behaviour of material under different types of loading conditions and determine their mechanical properties. They are also trained to perform tests, analyse data, and present the results as per standards.
