Communication Lab

The lab is focused on familiarizing students with the analogue and digital and digital communication / telecommunication basics used in many applications today.

The Feedback® hardware equipment used in this lab runs hand in hand with software provided and installed on lab PCs. In addition, the lab contains all the facilities needed for the majority of the communication experiments to enable interested students to perform further tests when needed.

In each session, the students are walked through the experiment, step by step, using the interactive software tutorial. By following this approach, the students are taught the basic analysis and design experience they need in the real world to understand the techniques of many communication systems used today as well as being able to design them.

Contents of the Lab:

  • 10 Pcs Feedback® test benches. Model No. 53-230, RAT 92-20
  • 2 Pcs HAMEG® function generator.
  • 2 Pcs HAMEG® DC power supply.
  • 2 Pcs Promax® digital oscilloscope up to 60 MHz.
  • 20 Pcs of personal computers, all equipped with the necessary hardware interfacing and major software utilities installed on them such as (MS Office, MATLAB, etc.).

Computer Networks Lab

This Laboratory aims to provide students with practical experience in computer networks design, building, testing, and administration.  Students are also trained on networks connections, security, and dedicated applications development.

The Lab has been equipped with modern equipment, including Switches, Routers, Access Points, Wireless Controller and its accessories like cables, cable testers and network performance testing tools. The Lab has been equipped, also with modern computers, on which we have installed required network applications software, such as network simulator and network packet analyzer.

The Lab has flexible design, which offers working as one integrated network, or as individual networks .It consists of eight network platforms tied together to make up(compose) a single integrated network, each platform can also operate as a separate network.
