Research Areas

Design and Manufacturing

Our design research focuses on the design of components, mechanisms, products and systems, and on the issues inherent in designing, prototyping and manufacturing them.

Faculty members and graduate student look at hardware in lab.

Issues range from component and assembly modeling in the design of machines and robotic manipulators and biomedical systems, to developing Internet-based decision support tools in collaborative product design.
