The Mechanical Vibrations & Dynamic Systems Laboratory provides opportunities for students to incorporate vibration analysis into the design, development, and optimization of products. The lab serves the Mechanical Vibrations (MME 315) course. Students use experimental modal analysis hardware and software.

The objective of this lab is to provide students with an environment to model and analyze complex engineering systems for vibration analysis. This lab space is utilized for experimental research and course related projects and demonstrations and provides tools for design projects, which involve concepts and applications in terms of dynamics, vibrations and controls. This laboratory equips students with the current industry practice in vibration based analysis and design of products. Research experiences for undergraduate students are built into the fabric of this laboratory.
