The Turbo Lab draws on the world-renowned research expertise of Texas A&M University’s Dwight Look College of Engineering and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station to provide undergraduate and graduate education programs that develop highly-skilled, industry-ready engineers.
Students are provided elective options in turbomachinery performance, fluid and thermal science, vibrations, stress analysis and related topics.
Graduate students in the Turbo Lab are remarkably well-prepared to step into leading positions within the turbomachinery community. The Turbo Lab’s emphasis on empirical validation of prediction sets the program apart from related graduate coursework across the world. Students are provided a balance of general performance and reliability research with specific electives in turbomachinery performance, rotordynamics and more.
