With the establishment of new campus at Chak Shahzad, Islamabad we were able to expand the number of our labs to nine. These labs are an added addition to our intellectual armament. These labs have been designed to reflect an environment particularly suited to technological learning. Each of these labs has the capacity of about 40 to 50 students per lab. Apart from specific lab equipment in each of the labs, students also have the printing facility as well a reference book shelf comprising of project summaries and reports of projects done in previous semesters. All labs are also equipped with latest audio/video teaching aids.
We have following Labs for teaching, research and development purposes.
1. Microprocessor interfacing and Digital Design Lab
The EE-department’s Digital Design Lab caters the needs of both Microprocessor and Digital Logic Design related courses. The importance of microprocessor lies in its flexibility and the ability to link with sensors, measuring and switching devices and execute industrial processes. The lab is equipped with the entire range of necessary equipment ranging from PC based Micro Processor Interfacing stations, Microprocessor Trainers, Kits and Programmers, IC Burners, Digital logic Trainers and all types of tools and accessories like Digital Multi Meters and a variety of Digital / Analog components, consumables, Engineering software, a CD database, set of technical books and manuals.
2. Electronics Lab
The revolution in telecommunication and other industries is mainly due to the evolution of electronics. Keeping in mind the importance of Electronics, the EE Electronics Lab is equipped with the entire necessary lab equipment like Double Trace / Triple Trace Oscilloscopes, Function Generators, Frequency Counters, DVMs, PCB Screen Printing capabilities, PCB Film Exposing Labs, PCB Drilling stations, all types of tools, accessories and a variety of Digital / Analogue. Components, consumables, and Anti-glare illuminated workbenches.
3. Project Lab
Students in the final year of BS program are heavily involved with projects in engineering design and application. These students perform substantive lab-work to gain practical and hands-on engineering experience. To meet up this demand, the project lab is equipped with latest equipment such as Signal Generators, Network Analyzers, TV Trainer, Spectrum Analyzer, Digital Oscilloscopes, various FPGA (Field Programmable Gated Arrays) kits and DSP Kits. Also to integrate these devices with different latest software, students in the project labs are provided with PCs along with printing and internet facility as well as a collection of project summaries and reports of projects done in previous semesters.
4. Control & Machine Lab
All process industries, steel plants and textile factories employ control systems in the form of automated machinery. Feedback control systems are one of the most diverse systems which are defining and changing the face of the modem technology. Understanding these concepts with hands on training can help the students to properly install, operate and modify the control systems in an industrial environment. To meet the demands of the different lab courses we have a wide variety of DC Servo Trainers, PLC Trainers, PLC Modules and self-made Auto/Manual Relay Modules.
5. Microwave & Communication Lab
Recently Microwaves has gained new prominence in the field of Communications. Therefore, keeping the importance of this field in mind, a number of courses has been included in the curricula of BSTE program. This Lab provides an opportunity for the students to enhance their understanding of Microwaves through extensive practical works. Other than that of supporting the regular Lab courses for "Microwave Engineering" and "Antennas and Radio Wave Propagation", the Lab also provides support for student’s final year research projects in the areas like "Wireless Communication Systems" and "Microwave and Satellite Communication Systems" and "Radars and Navigation Aids".
6. Circuits Lab
One out of our four-year Engineering program consists of the core of basic physical sciences. This core provides our graduates with the basis of theory, design, and analysis that will enable them to adapt to whatever may come along during their careers. To meet the practical experimentation demands of these courses, the Electrical Engineering department’s Physics lab is therefore equipped with Oscilloscopes, Function Generators, Electronic Trainers, Meld’s Operators and other instrumentation capable of supporting a wide variety of experiments.
7. Computer Labs (3)
Three state-of-the-art Computer labs equipped with internet, network and printing facilities cater for the need of those courses which require software implementation or analysis of their concepts. Each of these labs has 50 work stations. Apart from the scheduled labs, students are given open-lab hours in which they are able to use the internet facilities and are able to access various EE journals and other resources to further enhance their knowledge.
