Lab Facilities in the College of Technology

A Variety of Labs

The College of Technology has several different types of labs to reflect the wide range of subject offerings in the college. The computer labs are used across most disciplines. They provide desktop computers for students to work on homework and to learn and use standard and specialized software for their classes. In addition, each department has its own labs for teaching and research (Construction Management, Engineering Technology, Human Development and Consumer Sciences, Information and Logistics Technology).

Additional labs associated with the College of Technology with their own web sites include the following:

  • The ATT Technology Lab serves as a hub for the international educational and research community to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information.
  • The Center for Logistics and Transportation Policy (CLTP) Lab serves as a classroom for professional logistics training.
  • The Engineering Technology department has a lab management site where you can see the latest job postings for graduate assistants, news for ET classes and labs and other pertinent information.
  • The Engineering Technology department has labs for the computer engineering and electrical power programs.
  • The Instructional Support Services lab provides instructional support services for students and faculty.
  • The Wireless and Optical Networking Laboritory (WON) covers research in optical networking supported by SWB and MCI.
  • The Intelligent Sensor Grid and Informatics Lab (ISGRIN) covers research in biomedical sensors and image processing, intelligent systems, distributed sensor networks, digital control systems and mechatronics.
  • The Networking Lab is an applied research laboratory in the Department of Engineering Technology. Our research is on distributed systems interconnecting networked applications. We are funded by industry and federal research grants. Instrumentation and measurement systems, software-defined networking (SDN) and applications, network security, cloud-based networking, sensor networks, and information technology systems are the main areas of research. Research assistantship positions are available, please contact Dr. Gurkan at dgurkan@uh.edu.
  • The Remote Optical Circuits Lab (ROCK) provides simulation and remote optical equipment acquisition to allow students to study the principles and aspects of Optical Circuits.
