Virtual laboratories allow students to log on to a simulated environment residing on a remote server.

Remote laboratories allow students to remotely control real components or instruments from any place with Internet access.

Objectives

Improve the learning of undergraduate student population in the engineering technology program.

Revamp some existing laboratories with virtual and remote functionalities.

Provide a platform to publish the VR-Lab coursewares.

Promote inter-institutional collaboration by developing and sharing VR-Lab courseware.

Develop faculty expertise through research and teaching initiatives.
