Key Donation to MSE Teaching Lab

The Department received a wonderful and most generous donation of state-of-the-art materials testing equipment from Kay, John, and Matthew Putman. This includes instruments that measure viscosity, rheological properties, fatigue and failure, filler dispersion, and stress vs. strain.

This donation thoroughly upgrades and modernizes the Department’s materials science and engineering undergraduate teaching laboratory. It also serves as a new vital part of the Department’s shared materials characterization equipment for research. Many thanks to the Putman family!
