The role of students experience in laboratory tests as a part of their engineering education is discussed. Nowadays, when computer simulations become an important tool in engineering design, problems solution, and research, students may loose the touch of real-world hardware and challenges. Hence, exposure to experimental work is very significant. It is proposed that at the advanced stages of the first degree studies, experiments related to specific courses will be incorporated as a part of the course material. It is also believed that in studies towards higher degrees, the combination of experimental research with theoretical modeling and analysis is an excellent introduction for the future professional career.
