Research is a vital part of all Engineering programs, allowing faculty members and students to participate in innovative projects that are focused on scientific discovery, provide educational content for the participants, and also keep our classrooms current. We have a long history of funded research in areas including energy, materials, nanotechnology, biomedical and health applications, controls, manufacturing, reverse engineering, environmental monitoring, transportation, computer networking, and engineering education. Projects have included collaborations with colleagues within the School of Engineering and Technology, other Schools on campus (notably the School of Science and School of Business), and with colleagues at other academic institutions, in industry, and at federal agencies.
Engineering houses several chemical and electrical engineering labs, several computer labs, as well as the Virtual Parts Engineering Research Center laboratory.
