These multidisciplinary, crosscutting themes span the spectrum of engineering and fluidly link our disciplines and researchers. We will apply these themes to each of our four strategic research priorities to ensure long-term success.
Empowering 21st Century Learners and Innovators
The need to educate more engineers in an increasingly competitive and cross-disciplinary environment will require us to transform the way we educate and prepare our students.
Designing and Developing New Materials
We will focus on advancing material innovations that will move society forward and create opportunities for products and processes to improve the quality of life.
Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems and Networks
Computational modeling has revolutionized the engineering enterprise, and we will continue to explore possibilities to accelerate developments in simulation and visualization.
