Materials-Testing Lab Opens on College Campus
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments and Oklahoma State University (OSU) joined forces to establish The College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology’s (CEAT) Mechanical and Physical Properties Testing Lab. The new lab is part of the ExxonMobil Testing Laboratory in the new ENDEAVOR facility on OSU’s campus in Stillwater, Okla. Equipped with a collection of Shimadzu’s materials-testing instruments, the space will allow students to characterize materials by utilizing an array of scientific techniques.
Shimadzu’s suite of instruments includes an energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer and six fully loaded, high-capacity universal test machines. ENDEAVOR is a 72,000-square-foot facility encompassing three floors of laboratories and maker spaces focused on creating multidisciplinary, collaboration-based learning environments that prepare students for the real-world workforce.
