Science Laboratories and Facilities for Teaching, Research and Innovation
Faculty of Applied Sciences has a range of science laboratories and facilities to support the programme offerings at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The laboratory facilities available are currently supporting the teaching, learning, research, servicing and industrial-academia collaboration well.
The chemistry laboratories provide for both bench experimentation and the teaching of instrumental analysis. These laboratories are equipped with a wide range of analytical instruments such as:
|The rotary evaporator system is commonly used during organic chemistry practical.||Students using the high performance liquid chromatography system to analyze non-volatile organic compounds||Students operating the Micowave Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer for the analysis of trace metals in aqueous sample.||The basic principle and operation of the flame atomic absorption spectrometer is taught during the practical class for instrumental analysis course.|
In the field of Life Science (Bioscience with Chemistry) per se, we are well equipped with instruments for the following:
|Biochemical analysis||Microscopic analysis||Characterization of biological cells with flow cytometry.||Characterization of bioactive compounds in the lab|
Food Science Laboratories
The research and development for new food products could be realized here with the support of food science and technology instruments:
|Food rheological analysis with rheometer||Sensory evaluation of food in food kitchen||
Preparation of sample for freeze drying
|Food microbiological analysis|
Sport and Exercise Science Laboratories
The sport and exercise science laboratories is used predominantly for the extensive practical teaching that goes on at all levels, as well as individual data collection activities for dissertations. Our laboratories are equipped with:
Students also have the opportunity to use all our biomechanical equipment from simple 2D video capture to state of the art 3D motion capture. Biomechanics Laboratory is equipped with:
VO2max testing using a portable metabolic cart and cycle ergometer.
|Resistance training to reduce the risk of injury.||
Practical session using the CSMi Isokinetic Dynamometer.
Sports science students are measuring the energy expenditure during exercise.
The Physics laboratories are equipped for teaching practical classes for undergraduate-level physics courses which ranges from basic mechanics setups, thermodynamics, electronics, electromagnetic studies,etc.
|Experiment to study the behavior light using a simple laser and optical system.||Laser system for studying the optical property of liquid||
Students working on the android platform base wheel chair project.
