The Air Measurements Lab is used as a teaching lab for both undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to labs involving the measurement of ambient air quality and industrial air pollution sources, the facility hosts lab courses for noise and vibration control, solid waste engineering, and sustainable environmental engineering. In addition, the Air Measurements Lab provides a facility for the environmental design competition teams: the WERC Design Competition, the Pacific Southwest Regional ASCE Water Treatment Competition, and AWMA’s Environmental Challenge International (ECi).
The Air Measurements Lab includes a 2,100 square foot indoor space with 7 large workbenches and a deck area with 1,600 square foot of outdoor experimental space. The lab is also a smart-room with a projector for lab-prep lectures and student presentations with seating for 22 students.
Facilities: ENVE 443, ENGR 581-583
The Bio-Environmental Engineering Laboratory is used for both undergraduate and graduate courses.
The Kiewit Civil Engineering Materials Laboratory is primarily used for the testing of fundamental materials used in civil engineering and construction. This laboratory has received a sizeable donation from Kiewit to purchase and update some of the equipment and to make some renovations to the facilities. Kiewit is one of North America's largest and most respected construction companies.
