The instron- a specialized universal testing machine, which is one of the costliest machines sits grandly in the laboratory. There is a microscopic study laboratory, thermo dynamics laboratory, corrosion laboratory equipped with state of art machines. Melting facility and testing facility is also available. The department of Metallurgy, soon to be called the department of Metallurgy and Material Science Engineering Department has high level interactions with the CMERI, DSP and other steel plants in and around Durgapur.
