Civil Engineering Labs

The Civil Engineering Laboratories are a collaboration between different laboratories connected to the V-building. Within the Civil Engineering Laboratories we have many different instruments, testing machines but also different competencies to help you with your research and development.

Please notice that the Fire Lab has become part of the Civil Engineering Labs.
