Internal Combustion Engines Laboratory
Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) Curriculum is offered at very few colleges in the country.
State-of-the-art laboratory facilities are used to gain practical experience through a practical, hands-on approach.
ICE Laboratory covers all types of internal combustion engines. It combines the general and specialized study of design principles, operation, repair, maintenance, installation, testing, instrumentation, data acquisition, data analysis, and manufacturing aspects of individual components, individual systems, or the engine as a whole. It also deals with automotive electronics, emissions, and controls. In addition, the students learn a great deal about other engine-driven equipment such as compressors, pumps, generators, and external combustion engines, electric vehicles and hydraulic turbines which are the counterpart technologies of internal combustion engines.
Take a look at some photos of our facilities. (There are several, be patient.)
Our Internal Combustion Engine Laboratory was the testing site for the Gleasman Stepless Geared Transmission (SGT).
Here a few photos taken during and after the testing.
Students were very active participants in the SGT project and are also involved in other applied technology projects and student design competitions. Students have the opportunity to become members of the Society of Automotive Engineers and take advantage of the many activities available through the professional organization.
Career opportunities for graduates are unlimited due to the broad knowledge, versatility, and technical training acquired. Opportunities may include automotive, aerospace, petroleum, or process equipment industries as well as utility companies in both laboratory and field settings.
Graduates may also choose to continue their education at the baccalaureate
level in Mechanical or Electromechanical Engineering Technology. Persons
graduating from this curriculum have the opportunity to continue their
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Club
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Club
