The world-class Energy and Automotive Research Laboratories, a 30,000- square-foot complex, houses the University's research on automobile engine efficiency, alternative energy, and emission reduction. The facility contains two engine test cells, a powertrain lab, control rooms, fuel rooms, faculty and graduate student offices, and a conference room.
The Michigan Uniform Energy Code Training and Implementation Program was created by the School of Planning, Design & Construction at Michigan State University. The curriculum is designed to assist home builders, architects, engineers, subcontractors, suppliers, and government officials in implementing and enforcing the energy code in the state of Michigan. The purpose of this program is to increase understanding, improve compliance, reduce administrative time and costs, and to improve customer relationships among these groups. The training programs are approved for Public Act 54 continuing education credits for building officials by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs through the Michigan Bureau of Construction Codes. Over 5,000 attendees and almost all State of Michigan Building Officials have received training through this program.

The Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) Laboratory (NDEL) at
has been at the forefront in the development of innovative solutions to NDE related problems. Nondestructive evaluation is the examination of an object for structural integrity without impairing the future usefulness of the object. The objective of NDE is to detect and characterize internal or surface cracks and corrosion in structures that can result in failure of the structure. The test method ranges from a simple visual one to more complex sensors that involve some form of energy, such as electromagnetic, acoustic, thermal, radiographic, etc. Michigan State University
Research activity in the NDEL is supported by the aerospace, nuclear power, defense, natural gas and biomedical industries, among others. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to conduct research across a broad spectrum of electromagnetic and ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation methodologies.
