Engineering applications involve development of new designs, which require iterations between theoretical knowledge and the actual outcome. One of the most fundamental task of an engineer is to collect data, analyze and reintegrate them into the design and development process. In this perspective, METU NCC Mechanical Engineering Program provides up-to-date experimental setups for students to connect their theoretical knowledge with the real world outcomes. These setups are integrated into courses offered in second, third and four years of the program.
