UST Engineering Labs

CAD/CAM Computer Classroom 
All of the department's labs contain computers. Some are in classrooms while others are in working labs with data gathering tools. Several PCs control equipment such as CNC mills and lathes, 3D Printers and a laser cutter, and a MTS tensile test machine. Currently, Room 230 is equipped with 3.0 GHz HP 8300MT PCs (installed summer 2012) running Windows 7 x64. Engineering computer labs are available for student use 24x7 via card access whenever classes are not using the room. In total, there are over 150 PCs in engineering.

2016-2017 Engineering Software
The following list is dynamic and subject to change. One of a kind software is generally not shown. The software listed below is generally available on the majority of the PCs in the engineering labs so you do not have to go searching for it. Software is generally updated either during the summer or over winter break.
