Welcome to Mechanical Lab

A specialist lab where students are able to practically learn and improve their skills in key areas, such as welding, mechanics, fitting, and many more.

Practical experimentation and testing are at the root of modern engineering practice. Laboratory work is vital for gaining fundamental understanding of how materials, parts, components or systems will behave under a variety of conditions. As such, it is essential that mechanical engineering students be able to work productively in this setting.

Lab Facilities


The process of welding is a method of fabrication which involves joining two materials together, usually metals, either with heat, pressure or both.


The field of Mechanics unpacks the effects that energy and forces have on an object.


A boilermaker builds and repairs metal parts by cutting, shaping and welding steel.

Fitting & Turning

This is the assembly and manufacture of metal parts that are used in machinery, vehicles, etc.
