"Research is the process of going up alleys to see if they are blind." -Marston Bates
Student conducting research.

Research is a major component of life within the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The conduct of research is essential to educate both graduate and undergraduate students with up-to-date science and engineering technology, and to keep the faculty at the cutting edge of their fields.

Research activity in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dedicated and transformative. With more than $17 million in grants and contracts being annually awarded to the college, we have several hundred research projects ongoing concurrently. Many of these projects involve collaborations with our campus colleagues and our industry partners.

Our research has garnered both national and international attention and these activities only begin to scratch the surface of our innovative solutions.

Our research touches every aspect of life, all in an effort to take our community to the next plateau.
