COE - Research and Centers

Research Overview

One of the College of Engineering’s greatest strengths is its extensive research programs.  Faculty research sponsored by private industry and government agencies such as the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Department of Energy and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have earned widespread recognition.  Beyond that, research provides our students with invaluable practical experience and the opportunity to work closely with mentoring professors.

Research Focus Areas

The strength and diversity of the College research, labs, and centers reflect the depth and the often complementary nature of faculty research activities.  This interconnectivity and advanced technology helps students and faculty achieve new heights for innovation and discovery-based learning.
