The aim of the laboratory is to use three dimensional digitization and rapid prototyping instruments of reverse engineering methods in order to model, develop and conduct quality control processes of aerospace structure elements.
The mission of laboratory is to conduct and publish experimental studies on national and international levels for the purposes of scientific advancement on reverse engineering studies and transfer these to advanced technology applications. It also provides students with an experimental environment to help build on their theoretical knowledge.
