Mechanical Engineering Laboratory
Our mechanical engineering laboratory is designed for study of thermofluids, solid mechanics and dynamics. It also has an area with machine tools for manufacture of student designs.
There is a purpose-built engine testing facility to measure engine performance and emissions and our energy laboratory is available to conduct thermofluid experiments relevant to mechanical engineering.
The materials laboratory has facilities for material microstructure examination and properties testing. Equipment incudes microscopes and various properties testers for tensile, fatigue, wear, corrosion, hardness, and impact testing.
The dynamics and control laboratory allows you to study gyroscope theory, vibration theory, non-linear control and inertia bending.
More flexible ways to learn
Our Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has been recognised as leading the university sector. It builds upon our pledge to offer an equitable and inclusive approach to learning and teaching for all our students.
UDL means we offer a wide variety of support, facilities and technology to all students, including those with disabilities and specific learning differences.
Just one of the ways we do this is by using ‘DMU Replay’ – a technology providing all students with anytime access to audio and/or visual material of lectures.
This means students can revise taught material in the way which suits them best, whether it's replaying a recording of a class or adapting written material shared in class using specialist software.
Library and learning zones
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offers a range of print and online resources to support your studies. Many resources and services can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library staff offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching, reference management and assistive technology. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone. We also have space across campus for group or individual work and study, with computer stations, laptops, plasma screens and assistive technology available.
