Mechanical Engineering Laser Laboratory

A state-of-the-art laser laboratory will support the University of Adelaide as the lead university partner in the Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition (HiLT) CRC.

Mechanical Engineering labs previously located in the Engineering North building, will be combined and moved to Engineering South. The new laser lab will become a critical facility for anticipated research programs within the HiLT CRC.

Project details

  • Opportunity to expand the types of experiments that can be undertaken for the entire research team.
  • Improve current storage issues and handling of hazardous material (particulates) across the overall project area.
  • Allow for researchers to safely relocate lasers and rigs to and from this lab.
  • Provide compliant and functional working space at the ground floor level.

Expected completion is May 2024, with handover of laboratories 2 and 6 in early-2024.
