Establishment of Armenian National Engineering Laboratory at SEUA

02.10.2012

Establishment of Armenian National Engineering Laboratory (ANEL) 

at State Engineering University of Armenia

 

28 October, 2012 - Enterprise Incubator Foundation, Yerevan, Armenia    

Enterprise Incubator Foundation and US Agency for international Development signed an Agreement on establishment of Armenian National Engineering Laboratory (ANEL) at the State Engineering University of Armenia (SEUA), jointly with the National Instruments Armenian Branch.


The main goal of the Project is to meet the demand of the engineering industry in quality specialists and graduates educated on up-to-date technological base to confront the employee shortage and to increase value-added and innovativeness of Armenian high tech businesses, thus increasing their international competitiveness. 


The objectives of the Project is to strengthen the educational capabilities and enhance the research potential of the Armenian engineering sector by upgrading and expanding the SEUA educational and research facilities to the world standard through the establishment of ANEL. 


Creation of such Center for excellence in engineering will address the following key challenges:

  • Outdated laboratory equipment and the need to modernize engineering curriculum in Armenia
  • Increasing demand for Armenian engineering talent by the engineering and engineering design companies worldwide; 
  • Turning Armenia into an exporter of engineering technologies, products and services to the global market; 
  • Establishing strategic research directions and shaping Armenia as a vital engineering hub.

The ANEL will be located on four floors of the SEUA Yerevan campus building #10. The area of each floor is 400 sq. m making in total 1,600 sq m. 


It will be comprised of about 30 specialized and universal Educational and Research laboratories covering all 6 major specializations of SEUA: Cybernetics, Radio Engineering and Communication Systems, Power Energy, Electrical Engineering, Transport and Mechanical and Machine Building engineering.  Combination of Educational and Research labs will ensure the students involvement in scientific projects and developments which will help them to quickly integrate into the scientific and engineering projects, based on their experience in ANEL. Laboratories will be equipped with the latest equipment and software in all engineering fields.


The ANEL key advantages will be: 

  • State-of-the-art laboratory equipment, major part of which will be based of the technologies of the world leading companies (such as National Instruments)
  • Coverage of most of the priority engineering areas of SEUA
  • Cost effective: one laboratory will be used by different disciplines
  • Combination of learning process and research activities
  • Modern curricula and teaching materials
  • Incubation environment 
  • Open use: being accessible for interested parties for other universities

The ANEL will also cooperate with industry and research institutions in the country. In particular, Research Laboratories will offer services to Armenia’s industry and research institutes to quickly and inexpensively solve their technical and scientific challenges. Educational Laboratories will compliment these efforts by providing facilities to train future personnel for the research institutions, Armenian industry and engineering groups.
