CET has twolab facilities that are designed to augment the students' learning experience. These
labs allow students to gain real-world experience from within the classroom. and prepare
for their future career.
The construction laboratory is a 5,926 square foot building, which houses a concrete
room, soils room, and moderate sized classroom for lectures. This lab was constructed
by students and faculty through generous donations from alumni. The construction
laboratory offers an effective platform to provide hands-on learning in both a laboratory
and classroom setting.
The concrete room is used to teach the fundamentals of making, sampling and testing
concrete such as measuring the slump of the fresh concrete, the air content of fresh
concrete, and using a hydraulic compression machine to measure the compressive strength
of hardened concrete. A glimpse of non-destructive testing NDT of hardened concrete
is provided through this classroom experience. Students taking Concrete Technology
will be given a chance to become ACI Field Grade 1 certified.
