Welcome to the UW Oshkosh Teaching and Energy Research Industrial Lab

According to the Energy Information Administration, about 80% of electricity in the next 30 years will be generated using traditional techniques. Also, the manufacturing profile and energy consumption structure in industrial plants will not change dramatically over the next three decades. Simultaneously, emerging measurements and control techniques will allow for more sophisticated optimization methods.

To follow actual trends observed in real industrial sector, the Teaching and Energy Research Industrial Lab (TERIL) has been established. A strong connection with the industrial sector is an integrated Lab's activity.

The main core of the TERIL are small-scale experimental units commonly used in a manufacturing sector: (i) pumping system, (ii) compressed air, (iii) industrial chiller and (iv) furnace.

All the lab's infrastructure support both: research and the UW Oshkosh Mechanical Engineering Technology educational program, as an innovative way to provide interesting engineering problems for term projects and homework.

I am strongly convinced the TERIL is a valuable addition to offered courses, enriching students’ preparation for their future professional careers.
