The X-Ray instrument physically located in Hamdi Mango Research center (HMRC), The device is single crystal diffractometer that uses the property of X-ray diffraction to determine the crystal structure of materials. They are intended for use with single crystals of chemical substances (inorganic, organic or organo-metallic), mineralogical and biological samples.

Cryomech’s Liquid Nitrogen Plants (LNP) are designed to generate liquid nitrogen (LN2) from atmospheric air. The LN2 is produced and stored in the system’s dewar. A standardliquid nitrogen plant consists of an air compressor, a compressed air filter bank, anitrogen generator, a cryorefrigerator and a dewar.

Our mass spectrometer is the used for many applications involving the analysis of unknown organic and inorganic compounds or complex samples. This instrument provides fragmentation in molecular formula and exact mass measurements. LC-MS provide additional capabilities to analyze unknowns and give these instruments the power far beyond other instruments in their class by integration with various separation techniques.

This lab is equipped with twenty five polarized light microscopes from different world leading manufacturers (Leitz, Nikon, Prior). The majority of these microscopes use transmitted light while some have both transmitted and reflected light facilities. As such these microscopes are used to identify crystalline substances including minerals, the building blocks of Earth's materials (i.e. rocks).

The following is a summary of the most important applications of this lab:

•  Teachig the courses of mineral identification in addition to studying the mineralogy and textures of various categories of rocks;

•  Serving undergraduate and graduate courses and research of the majority of Faculty members at the Department;

•  Offering a wide range of consulting services for the local community in particular those institutions dealing with construction and engineering materials.

INSPECT F50, FEG

FEI Company, Netherland

It provides 3–dimensional images magnified up to 1,000,000 X. It is used in the fields of mineralogy, agronomy, paleontology, medicine and pharmacology, materials, nanotechnology …etc.  ……………..more details

The use of the computer in the Actuarial Sciences has allowed for the introduction of much more creativity when carrying out data analyses and providing an understanding of the entire process of data analyzing. In addition, realistic large and complex data sets can be analyzed. Knowledge of computing is now assumed by potential employers of statisticians and actuaries.

The Actuarial Sciences Lab was built in 2005. It is comprised of 66 Pentium IV 3Ghz computers; these computers are all networked and use Windows XP Professional as the operating system and connected to a Windows 2003 server. The lab is also provided with a datashow, projector, scanner and 3 LaserJet printers. This equipment is available for both faculty and graduate students. The lab is divided into two areas one for lectures and the other for training.

It is used to study the surface structure of materials.

This is used to prepare thin films which are used to study the electrical and mechanical properties of materials.

It contains a number of work stations that are used for theoretical and computational calculations.
