Research

Groundbreaking research is happening at the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology. Every day, our faculty and students investigate new systems, devices and procedures, from nanotechnology to global processes. They perform their work in our cutting-edge laboratories and other facilities. Many research projects are funded by organizations such as the National Science Foundation and Argonne National Laboratory, reflecting our strong external partnerships.
