The department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering offers numerous resources to assist students with the need for computer and technology resources within their courses. The department maintains the philosophy that technology should not be a "limiting factor" to our students education.
MNE Students have access to several computer laboratories. The department has 2 general use labs; the PC Studio and the Linux Lab. These 2 labs have a combined 45 computers for both general computing use (Word, Excel, Net browsing, E-mail) and advanced course related assignments (Matlab, Mathematica, Visual C++, SolidWorks, etc.). Additionally, the department maintains 8 instructional labs for enhancing the teaching atmosphere by adding a "hands-on" component to the theory taught within the Mechanical & Nuclear curriculum. The Instructional Labs enhance the topics of Automatic Controls (ME 355/ME 597E), Fluids and Fluid Flow (ME 325), Heat Transfer (ME 315), Measurement (ME 345), Micro Computer Interfacing (ME 445), Nuclear data analysis (NucE 450/NucE 451), and Vibrations (ME 375).
