    Structural element during testing

    The Structural Engineering Teaching and Research Laboratory (SETRL) opened on Villanova's campus in June 2005. Housed within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the facility provides a unique environment where faculty and students, both undergraduate and graduate, work together to perform tests on a variety of full-scale and component size infrastructure elements. Fundamental to the mission of SETRL is the advancement of scholarship in structural, materials and transportation engineering within the context of education and service to the global civil society.


    SETRL is located at the East side of campus, with a convenient access from I476. Directions to our facility can be found here (pdf).
