Industry and Research

Our faculty and students are always hungry for industry relevant research opportunities. From important discoveries to dynamic solutions, our faculty and students combine science and technology to drive development of our core research areas including sustainability, power systems and electronics, medical devices, materials and composite systems, robotics and dynamic systems, IoT, signal processing and embedded systems, heat and fluid flow, structures and much more.

Students at both graduate and undergraduate levels can and are encouraged to do research if they have the interest. It is a great way to gain new knowledge and skills and foster relationships with faculty and fellow students.
