GTE laboratory campaign

    The GTE and GEPG laboratory facilities were established at the Asian Institute of Technology in 1973. The laboratory facilities currently consist of the following five testing fields: soil testing, rock testing, aggregate testing, geosynthetics testing, and field testing. In addition to their regular laboratory testing services to the industry, a number of faculty and students regularly used the laboratory facilities and equipment to carry out experiments related to their teaching and research work. The majority of the testing devices are over four decades old and are getting outdated. Some of them were damaged due to the devastating flooding event in 2011. Hence, there is a strong need to upgrade the laboratory facilities to continue pursuing the mission.

    Goal: To provide support for relevant teaching/research activities at an international level and to provide reliable and professional laboratory testing services to the industry.

    What is needed: The 1st phase budget for allocating the new equipment is 7,000,000 Baht.
