ADU to set up mechanical lab

Abu Dhabi University (ADU) has said it is to add an advanced mechanical engineering lab to its existing facilities next month, in a move aimed at tackling the country's most pressing challenges in nuclear power, green energy and robotics. The facility will be divided into several labs such as the Thermal lab, Dynamics lab, Manufacturing lab, as well as a Machine Shop. Each of these labs will be equipped with top-of-the-range equipment such as the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, which will prepare the students for the working environment of real-life mega-industries. The lab will also boast of the presence of an advanced Robot and Conveyer System that simulates the production process of factories along with a Cross Heat Flow Exchanger for thermal experiments and Universal Vibration Apparatus for Dynamics studies.
