Abstract or Summary

A significant portion of engineering education involves practical activity. This requires educational institutions to have appropriate resources for labs and projects. Financial constraints often drive the need for innovative solutions to meet this requirement. Hence, this paper presents the design of a low-cost soil drying oven for use in civil engineering labs and projects. The oven was designed by electrical and mechanical engineering students and is based on locally available parts. A prototype is under construction for evaluation.
