Geotechnology Laboratories are equipped with instrumentation to perform laboratory experiments and Site investigations. This owns four laboratories.
The mineral and rock collection at the Geology laboratory help undergraduate students to have hands-on experience in rock identification and evaluating variable properties of rocks and minerals. Moreover, the geological maps available in the laboratory allow students to understand geological structures of Sri Lanka.
Following Equipment and materials are available for Students at Geology Laboratory
Geotechnical laboratory in the Department of Civil and Environmental Technology provides facilities to conduct a number of tests to obtain the geotechnical properties of soil. These tests are carried out to find out the suitability of soil for the civil engineering construction projects. The CET department is currently planning to acquire modern testing devices for the geotechnical laboratory. The following instrument is available at the moment.
The Geotechnical Site Investigations laboratory is planned with a diverse range of field testing and analysing equipment for both surface and subsurface exploration. The lab will contain facilities to cover the areas of Geotechnical Investigations, Geophysical Investigations, Hydrogeological Investigations. The laboratory is equipped with a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) which is rare to experience.
