The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI recently dedicated the Carrier Fluid and Thermal Science Laboratory.

Over the past four years, Carrier Corp. has donated $71,000 for the purchase of equipment and software that will allow mechanical engineering students at IUPUI to do more advanced work.

Carrier Corp., based in Farmington, Conn., has its gas-furnace factory and an engineering group in Indianapolis. The company is a unit of United Technologies Corp.

“Carrier believes strong support of this program has mutual benefits to the community and the company,” John Galbraith, vice president of engineering at Carrier, said in a prepared statement. He noted that 27 IUPUI graduates have worked for the company over the years.

IUPUI’s former labs allowed students to learn the basics of heat and mass transfer, but instruments were not advanced enough to concentrate on the design of thermal-fluid systems.
