Air Measurements Laboratory
Facilities: ENVE 309, ENVE 407, ENVE 426, ENVE 439, ENVE 542
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 work benches 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.
