At ME, we formulate our research programs for solving vexing problems that are intellectually sophisticated and potentially impactful to the society. Solving such complex problems requires the integration of knowledge, methods, and expertise from different disciplines. Based on the strengths of ME faculty, we have identified the following Strategic Focus Areas. With the strong collaboration among the faculty members across the campus, we continue to create novel frameworks to catalyze scientific discovery and innovation.
- Advanced Energy Systems
- Complex Fluids and Soft Materials
- Computational Sciences
- Healthcare Engineering
- Novel Materials and Manufacturing
- Systems Engineering
Our research is sponsored by federal agencies, industrial sponsors, and private foundations. ME faculty are working together to generate innovative ideas to solve challenging engineering problems.
