Research Overview

BCOE is home to cutting-edge, high-risk, profoundly creative research. We're invested in internationally recognized engineering research in hundreds of emerging areas focused on solving the world's greatest challenges. Faculty and their research teams collaborate in multidisciplinary research with colleagues at other colleges, campuses and industry leaders.  

Our accomplished faculty are made up of leaders in their areas of study and include more than 90 fellows of professional societies and more than 50 National Institutes of Health, NSF CAREER, Brige, and Young Investigator recipients. Their dynamic research programs address real-world problems and even define entirely new and novel research areas. 

A listing of research areas by department is included below. For more information on BCOE's Graduate Program, contact Dr. Chinya Ravishankar, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies.
