'Materials Testing Lab' is a course offered in the fourth semester of B. Tech. in Aerospace Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Tension test on metals, hardness test on metals using the Rockwell and Brinell tests, impact tests on metals using the Charpy and Izod equipments, double shear tests, helical spring tests, static bending and compression tests on wood and deflection test to verify the Maxwell reciprocal theorem.
In addition to the conventional tests, students are assigned to open lab projects that involve experimental studies including fabrication and setting up unconventional testing methods to understand the basic concepts of strength of materials.
