  • The center aims are: Following the most recent systems in-field. Selecting systems to join the force. Development of mechanical equipment systems that are already in service.Design mechanisms that fulfill the needs of the armed forces. Qualifying researchers who can fulfill aims and targets of the center. The research in the center heavily aim to employ hybrid systems (such as electro mechanical – hydro mechanical - … etc.) to develop the systems of mechanical equipment.
  • MTC nanotechnology research center offer the sustainable fabrication of bespoke nano particles with controlled crystalinity, size, shape, and surface properties for military and civilian application.
  • The major mission of the Weapons and Ammunition Research Center (WARC) is to develop weapon and ammunition systems. The department of weapons and ammunition in Military Technical College (MTC) is a major contributor in terms of technical direction. The center was founded for planning and carrying out the researches regarding conventional weapons of small arm calibers starting from 5.56mm as well as weapon systems of heavy calibers up to 155mm. Thus, researches performed on different types of small arm bullets, anti-tank ammunition and artillery projectiles are of main concern in the research program of WARC. Research program of the MTC cadets is also one of its major tasks where the cadets are provided opportunities to work on actual research projects.
  • The overall objectives of this multidisciplinary research program is to advance the theory and applications of MS2 through the deployment of cost-effective sensing technologies made possible through the development of a) specialized, intelligent processing and sensors integration algorithms, b) feature extraction for data management and c) real-time geo-computing.
