The University’s main campus features exciting resources and equipment, including a center for receiving and data processing of cosmic information, a student design bureau - INFOCOSMOS, with its micro satellite - USATUSAT, a center for open research resources and equipment - NANOTECH, a 3-dimensional virtual laboratory, a computational lab with its supercomputer and a recently created a robotics lab.
