Undergraduate research

Engineers must address challenges of daunting complexity, such as developing steady sources of renewable energy, rebuilding cities with sustainable methods and materials, jumpstarting the economy with new technology and products, and finding new ways to diagnose and treat major diseases. In the College of Engineering, undergraduate students tackle these challenges through multidisciplinary and translational research, learning principles and theories in the classroom and applying that knowledge in the laboratory under the guidance of a faculty advisor.

Our annual Student Design and Innovation Day allows engineering students from all programs and grade levels to present their research projects to their peers and professionals in their industries. Student Shiby George has designed an app that can remotely track a patient's heart rate in the healthcare industry with the help of professor Amar Basu.
