ARMENIAN NATIONAL ENGINEERING LABORATORIES (ANEL)

ANEL (Armenian National Engineering Laboratories) was founded on September 2, 2013 by Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF), RA Government, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and State Engineering University of Armenia.

 

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 are 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 a Center for excellence in engineering addresses 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  • Outdated laboratory equipment and the need to modernize engineering curriculum in Armenia;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 is 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 is comprised of about 30 specialized and universal Educational and Research laboratories covering 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 ensure the students involvement in scientific projects and developments which help them to quickly integrate into the scientific and engineering projects, based on their experience in ANEL. Laboratories are equipped with the latest equipment and software in all engineering fields.


The ANEL key advantages are: 

  • State-of-the-art laboratory equipment;
  • Coverage of most of the priority engineering areas of SEUA;
  • Cost effective: one laboratory is 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 cooperates with industry and research institutions in the country. In particular, Research Laboratories offers services to Armenia’s industry and research institutes to quickly and inexpensively solve their technical and scientific challenges.
