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.
