The University of Wyoming College of Engineering has recently installed an integrated laboratory of 10 networked personal computers for undergraduate student use. These machines have been equipped with analog-to-digital (A/D) interface boards for use in acquiring 'real world' data in the experimental laboratories. Initially this laboratory has been used to aid in teaching two Mechanical Engineering senior level courses, 'Instrumentation and System Dynamics' and 'Experimental Stress Analysis.' Students are taught the principles necessary to properly use and understand digital equipment in the experimental laboratory environment.
