Here at the College of Engineering and Applied Science, we are transforming society through disruptive discoveries. Engineering students and faculty create bold, new solutions that impact everyday lives. Think innovative manufacturing technology, life-saving devices, fitness tracking sensors, and reacting to the next pandemic. 

With more than $20 million in grants and contracts that are constantly increasing each year, CEAS delivers collaboration across campus, partnerships with industry, and entrepreneurial endeavors including collaboration with UC’s 1819 Innovation Hub.

These activities only begin to scratch the surface of our innovative solutions that garner both national and international attention. Our research touches every aspect of life, all in an effort to take our community to the next plateau. Next lives here.


Research pushes the boundaries of all our scientific and technical areas of endeavor. Our research accomplishments come from our dedicated faculty who never stop seeking new knowledge, and our students who are the future of engineering.
