A New Engineering Core Labs building for the undergraduate laboratory experiments is being planned to expand the existing facilities in all fields of Engineering. This facility will house undergraduate laboratories in Mechanical, Metallurgy, Material Science , Electrical , CELP , Design program streams of engineering.

The total area of this building is 37000 Sq. m.The building has five floors. The heavy labs for Mechanical & mettalurgy Engineering have been kept on the Ground floor due to their Structural requirements while the First Floor has Material Science & CAD/ Drawing Studios, the Second floor has Electrical engineering , Third has Centre for Laser Photonics & Fourth& Fifth house the Design Programme.

With the above mentioned varied functions of this building an extensive system of services has been planned with modular planning. The complex is divided into Six Blocks with a Central Service Corridor connecting all the shafts & the student movement along the periphery of the building.
