The faculty members in Wayne State’s Alternative Energy Technology program are consistently tapped by federal and private organizations. They work with departments across the College of Engineering and beyond to discover new fuel sources and systems. A group of entrepreneurial faculty members were among the founders of NextCAT Inc., a startup advancing biofuel catalyst technology on campus. And the Center for Automotive Research received several million dollars in funding for its pioneering research in optimizing engines with alternative fuels.
