Research Support Office

The College of Engineering Research Support Office exists to assist faculty with all administrative, financial and compliance aspects of proposal submission and management of their externally-funded research awards.

Each department within the College is assigned a Sr. Grant/Contract Administrator who serves as a dedicated resource for proposal development and post-award management needs. These individuals are the first point of contact for any research funding questions or issues that may arise.
