School of Computing and Engineering


We have 7 labs and studios

The School of Computing and Engineering provides a wide variety of facilities for our courses. Our labs are either brand new or have just recently been updated, and we continue to invest in equipment, software and services that will support our students, teaching and research.

  • student working at a drawing desk

    Architecture studio: The 125 square-meters Architecture Studio is a dedicated space for the Architectural Design and Technology students to work on their design projects.

  • hand drawing architecture blue print

    Architecture studio: The studio is equipped with 15 A0/A1 drawing boards, some modelling facilities, a number of PCs and Macs with essential software for architectural design such as AutoCAD Revit, AutoCAD, 3D Max, Sketchup, and Adobe Creative Suite.

  • student working at a computer with a scanner

    Computing Labs: OurComputing Labs offer state-of-the-art computers. Most computers are equipped with wide screen monitors.

  • computer lab

    Computing labs: The latest computer room offers 27 inch screens. On top of this, the University Library provides additional computers and 24/7 access.

  • concrete testing

    Concrete Testing Laboratory: This newly acquired laboratory is equipped to provide an extensive range of concrete testing including compressive strength of concrete as well as bricks and blocks.

  • concrete testing lab

    Concrete Testing Laboratory: Other testing includes concrete flexural testing and mortar mix proportions and mortar assessment. We are currently acquiring equipment for testing large structural sections in reinforced concrete, steel or composite construction.

  • electronics board

    Electronics Labs: Lab 1's electronic workstations comprise of digital oscilloscopes, function generators, power supplies, digital multimeters, soldering irons and computer stations with industry standard software including MATLAB, LABVIEW and Cadence Orcad.

  • Electronics lab

    Electronics Labs: Lab 2 offers facilities for projects in specialist areas such as Fibre Optics and Optoelectronics, Biomedical Engineering, Communications Technology and Audio Engineering.

  • students in the lab

    Soil and Geotechnics Laboratory: Soil Mechanics is an important branch of civil engineering that contributes to the understanding of ground behaviour.

  • student working in soil lab

    Soil and Geotechnics Laboratory: The lab provides space and equipment for soil classification, mechanical stabilisation, in-situ density and soil permeability testing.
