Automotive LabThe Automotive Lab is a comprehensive support facility that has a full assortment of shop equipment ranging from hoists and tire machines to hand tools and electronic diagnostic equipment. Designed to support engine and vehicle research, the lab contains tools for mechanical, electrical, fuel, cooling, lubricating, and emission system test and repair equipment for student use. An online technical manual system provides lab support. In addition, many senior design and research vehicles take shape in the automotive lab.
