  • Research/labs photos (1-3 photos with 1 paragraph describing your research)

The Control and Simulation Engineering Laboratory (CASE LAB) has been established as the center for the research activities associated with modeling, simulation and control in industrial chemical processes. The laboratory has been equipped with advanced hi-speed computers to test the newly developed algorithms for complicated modeling and simulation tasks. The prototype units for industrial applications such as heterogeneous reactors and advanced process controllers have also been developed for teaching and learning activities of the students. The laboratory has active collaborations with various industrial companies for research and development projects.
