The Engineering Design and Manufacturing Laboratories [EDML] are the heart of manufacturing in Concordia’s Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department. Renovated in 2007, the facility is divided into two areas, EDML A [advanced] and EDML B [basic], located in the Hall Building. The space is designed with emphasis on safety and efficiency. Protocols are in place to establish a clear way for students, at all levels, to have the opportunity to work with professional industrial quality machinery. Exposure and even access to advanced CNC and CMM machinery is possible!
While the primary mission of the EDML is to provide undergraduate manufacturing support, it also serves as an example of excellence and provides space and support for all levels of students to attain their manufacturing objectives. During fall and winter, courses such as Mech 311 (Manufacturing Processes) and Mech 490 (Capstone Mechanical Engineering Design Project) make heaviest use of the facility and outside these courses, graduate, post graduate and extracurricular student organizations are given opportunities for training, access and service.
To pursue this mission, the EDML is equipped with three CNC mills, one CNC Lathe, four conventional mills, three conventional lathes, sheet metal facilities, welding facilities and other machinery typical for a metal working environment including, but not limited to, hand tools, grinders, bandsaws and drill presses.
EDML staff look forward to helping you learn, design and develop for engineering excellence!
