A full range of professional level software, as well as current versions of textbooks and lab manuals are available for use. No appointment is necessary.

University Hall

At 89,000 square feet, University Hall is one of Armstrong’s largest academic buildings and is uniquely designed to look like the streets of downtown Savannah. It features the Patio Café and an expansive outdoor patio space. Engineering departments are housed within this building along with the Engineering Learning Center and the Technology Center. University Hall  room 112 Computing Lab houses PC workstations and serves as both a general-purpose computing lab and an instructional technology classroom. This lab is equipped with 42 student and one instructors’ workstations, as well as an InFocus LP725 overhead projector.

Engineering Learning Center (ELC)

The Engineering Learning Center is located in University Hall room 240 and will be open Monday-Thursday 9 – 5.  Students can receive help in MATLAB, Graphics, Statics and sometimes other engineering courses from peer tutors as well as access computers with engineering software installed. In our ELC, students can receive help in almost all 1st/2nd year engineering courses as well as mathematics and science from peer tutors.

MATLAB Marina is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) dedicated to the improvement of student learning of programming concepts using MATLAB, a technical computing language. It consists of several learning modules organized under the following areas: Fundamental Programming Concepts, Advanced Programming Concepts and Applications.

Mechanical Engineering Lab

The Mechanical Engineering Lab is located in the Annex 2 building room 121/122 and is equipped with four mini-lathes, four mini-milling machines, two 3D printers, one Rapid Prototyping Milling Machine, one Phase II Rockwell hardness tester and one drill press.

Electrical Engineering Lab

The Electrical Engineering Lab  is located in the Annex 2 building room 116 and is equipped with Tektronix oscilloscopes, analog and digital design trainers, 13 computers and electronic components.
