The mission of the MechLab is to serve the tribology and advanced manufacturing community. The overall focus is improving the practicing engineer’s ability to set up all the important variables in manufacturing in a timely manner. Our approach is to perform fundamental research in support of this goal, while taking care to consider the practical implementation of our research efforts. Through this combined agenda, students from the undergraduate to graduate levels are trained to have strong  capabilities coupled with fundamental experimental techniques and data analysis skills.
