Innovative Research

Our annual research expenditures are currently about $65 million and our per-faculty research expenditure puts us in the top 10 percent of U.S. engineering schools, according to the National Science Foundation.


Multidisciplinary teams collaborate in centers and specially funded initiatives to address important social needs like health care, personal security and recovery from natural disasters.

From tissue engineering and medical imaging to nanoelectronics, aeronautics, materials science and more, our faculty are at the forefront of their fields.
Interdisciplinary research creates rich opportunities for scientific breakthroughs. Colleagues in diverse fields share insights and learning, helping to create a fertile climate for discovery.
