The Faculty of Engineering library has several units of personal computers (PCs) in the e-lib room. Students are free to use these facilities for working on assignments, internet access, or references searching. Students are also allowed to install new applications on the PC for their education purposes upon librarian’s permission.
The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering library mainly supports the technical collection relative to the needs of the Industrial Engineering field. With the total area of 297m2, the library provides various collections of text books, journals, proceedings, handbooks, magazines, as well as final project, thesis, and dissertation reports. Both physical and digital versions of these collections are available in the library and regularly improved and updated.
There are several computer stations available for students to locate and obtain information regarding electronic information as well as physical books in the department library. There are three librarians ready to help students with library matters. In addition, if a faculty member needs a book or any reference that is currently not available in the library, the faculty member can request the library to order books or subscriptions to the librarians. The librarian will then process for the request and informs the faculty member should the materials have been available. One of the department librarians has also won the best librarian in the University. This proves the capability of the librarians serving the students in the department.
All these library facilities and collections are available for all students and faculty members of the Industrial Engineering Program and satisfactorily support educational and research activities.
