The Electronic and Simulation Laboratory (ESLab)

The lab is a modern electronic and computer-based simulation laboratory established under the Faculty of Computing, General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University. This laboratory is designed and equipped with modern and advanced equipment and instrumentations to foster excellence in teaching, research, collaborative work and provide ample opportunity to get hands-on experiments. There are 20 workstations set up here to conduct the practical for undergraduate students. Assistance will be provided as needed to encourage students’ projects. The laboratory specializes in projects in digital electronics, IoT, Embedded Systems, signal processing, and power electronics.
