The science and engineering education programs at SUST emphasize hands-on-experiences of students in labs. University labs play a central role in supporting faculty and student research. For these reasons, the university is committed to developing and maintaining state-of-the-art labs for students and faculty members. SUST has developed one of the best lab facilities in the country for research & development.

Non-Linear Optics

A highly sophisticated optics laboratory in the field of Nonlinear Optics. Lasers and exotic materials are procured with the financial assistance of the Ministry of Science and IC Technology. Fundamental properties of wave interaction in photo refractive media are being investigated. Two-beam coupling experiments are also in progress. The manifold applications in optical information processing, optical interconnection and neural networks stimulate the necessity and interest in this important area of nonlinear optics.


Cluster Computing Lab

The Cluster Lab supports a set of related research projects in operating systems, computer architecture, and algorithms. The broad objective is to improve system support for efficient and reliable information sharing in clusters and wide-area networks.


Information Retrieval Lab

The mission of this laboratory is to conduct world-class research in the general area of database and information retrieval systems. In recent years, our research has been focused mainly on Web-based search technology. In particular, we have been conducting research on scalable meta searching technology for providing unified access to the many information sources on the Web and on Opinion Retrieval. We also collaborate with researchers from other institutions.
