Automation Laboratory

The Automation Laboratory features the latest technology in automation that affords students the opportunity to work hands-on with equipment, applying classroom-learned principles while acquiring real world skills. In this laboratory, instruction is centered around the understanding of equipment application and use, as well as the important overriding need for integration of all components. This modern lab contains the following equipment:
