Biomedical engineering assistant professor Jonathan Lovell's research could help doctors better identify, understand and treat gastrointestinal ailments.

From tissue engineering and medical imaging to nanoelectronics, aeronautics, materials science and more, our faculty are at the forefront of their fields.

Biomedical engineers combine the problem solving ability of engineers with the knowledge of the biological and medical fields. They develop new solutions for improving human health, health care, and quality of life for all people.
We pursue integrative research and offer graduate training at the frontiers of chemical engineering in three main areas: nanoscale science and engineering, computational science and engineering, and biochemical and biomedical engineering.
We offer separate undergraduate programs in civil engineering and environmental engineering, as well as graduate programs in a variety of specialties. We are world leaders in earthquake engineering.
Our combination of computer science and computer engineering reflects our commitment to a modern integrated environment for research and education in computing, suited to the emerging shape of information science and technology in the 21st century.
From smart phones to green appliances, electrical engineers turn knowledge into reality. Our faculty engage in research to create the knowledge needed to solve problems in areas such as communications and signals processing, nanoelectronics and photonics and energy systems.
Industrial engineers apply scientific, mathematical, and computer techniques to design, model, analyze, and improve complex systems.
The Department of Materials Design and Innovation (MDI) is a forward-leaning, interdisciplinary initiative that will address regional and national demand for new materials that accelerate research and education in advanced manufacturing and biotechnology.
Many subjects addressed by mechanical and aerospace engineers are inderdisciplinary in nature. For example, MAE researchers in computational mechanics have developed a high fidelity volcanic landslide simulator to aid geologists in mapping hazard areas.
