Mechanical Engineering Shared Services Facility

Our shared facilities are administered by the department of mechanical engineering. We provide students and researchers open access to a wide range of equipment for measuring, characterizing and imaging of samples. If necessary, shared facility staff or super user of the instrument will offer training before giving access to the equipment.
