Universal Tester to Validate Student Innovations

Universal Tester to Validate Student Innovations

Grantee: Department of Mechanical Engineering

Amount Funded: $88,096

Funding Cycle: Spring 2019 Large Scale

Implementation Period: Single year

Funding Time Period: Academic year 2019-2020

Project Description: The Mechanical Engineering Department had one 30-year-old universal-testing machine and due to the frequency of use they were unable to grant many testing requests outside of core courses. Funds were used to purchase a new machine to exclusively support student projects, teams and independent research that would benefit from materials testing support. This machine would be dedicated to this type of work and available to all students on campus.
