The laboratory practice has been an important part of professional and engineering undergraduate education; the laboratory is an ideal place for active learning. Students learn in a real world environment, function as team members, discuss the planning of experiments, and share ideas about the analysis and interpretation of data. Most engineering instruction took place in the laboratory and it demands the active use of knowledge and skill.

For the student the objective of engineering laboratory is to “practice by doing” and the laboratory courses help them to gain insight and understanding of the real world which they learn in their theory courses and the ideas for innovations. Now there is shift from the text book learning to the learning by observation and doing. Students have to design, analyze, and build their own creation. The emphasis on laboratories has increased many folds over the years. Now attention has been paid to laboratory courses in the curriculum and teaching methods. Continue reading
