MechSE Laboratories

Pillar in lab with Illinois logo

MechSE’s wealth of research laboratories allows faculty, graduate and undergraduate research assistants, and postdoctoral and visiting scholars to conduct theoretical and experimental investigations of phenomena related to materials behavior, combustion, micro- and nanomechanical systems, controls and dynamics, thermodynamics, biomechanics, and much more.

Testing Laboratories

MechSE’s research laboratories are valuable resources for industrial and academic partners who require access to state-of-the-art facilities for tension and compression testing of large components and structures; high-temperature; tension-torsion and internal-external pressure testing of small materials samples; rapid prototyping equipment, machine tools, computers, and associated software for design and analysis work; and class 100 and class 10 cleanroom facilities for the fabrication and testing of micro- and nanoscale devices.
