See our labs in action

The labs are packed with PCs and development hardware and software for all kinds of embedded systems.

  • In our Digital Systems Lab, you’ll get a chance to learn the fundamentals of digital design using discrete components and programmable logic—the building blocks of all advanced digital hardware.
  • Our Computer Networks Lab is where you can experiment with network design and explore the protocols and security features of the Internet and industrial intranets.
  • In our Microcomputers Lab, you’ll study programming for embedded computer systems at the assembly-code level, allowing you to create fast, streamlined programs and develop powerful interrupt-driven systems.
  • In the Advanced Logic Systems Lab, you’ll learn about ladder logic and fuzzy logic, and use a commercial-quality programmable logic controller to operate a complete scale model assembly line.
  • Our REACH Lab — Research in Engineering and Collaborative Haptics is where you will “touch” virtual objects by using forces, vibrations or movement in simulations.
