Research Strengths

The College of Engineering has faculty, staff, and students that conduct research on a wide range of topics. Listed below are several research “strengths” where we have critical mass of very active researchers from across the college.  The faculty listed below are by no means exclusive to these areas as faculty often have additional areas of research.  In addition, as some faculty may have been inadvertently left off these strength areas, please see department webpages for complete information.
