Transport Phenomena Lab

Equipment in the common labs is available to all engineering undergraduate students, including equipment associated with dedicated lab courses, as well as course projects and extracurricular projects. Students in dedicated lab courses are automatically registered to use the equipment. Other interested students must register through the SuSu and Mark A. Fischer ’72 Engineering Design Center. All use of equipment is controlled through Agilent iLab Scheduling. Depending on your course or project usage, this scheduling may be scheduled by an instructor, student or technician. Please check your course syllabus, contact your course instructor, or check the Fischer Engineering Design Center forms and reservations page to see which method of scheduling is appropriate for you.

Overview of Services

This laboratory is part of the College of Engineering Common Labs Core.  The goal of the Common Transport Phenomena Laboratory is to provide a high impact learning environment where theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom is experienced in the laboratory. It is expected that a student completing an experiment or set of experiments will have a stronger understanding of the concepts taught in the theory courses and how these are represented in reality. In addition, the student will be become better engineer by having a practical experience of safety, sensors, data analysis, teamwork, ethics, and others.
