RESEARCH

The College of Engineering is the home to cutting edge research in areas as diverse as biomedical devices, materials, machine learning, cybersecurity, robotics, additive manufacturing, and biofuels. The College hosts core facilities for material and sensor characterization, tissue culture, and additive manufacturing. For more information, please contact Departments directly or direct inquiries to Dr. Patricia Relue, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies.

Congratulations, Dr. Vijay Goel, winner of the Hamdan Award for Medical Research Excellence in Orthopaedic Mechanics

Dr. Vijay Goel, Distinguished University Professor in Bioengineering received one of the three prestigious Hamden awards in medical research. Prof. Goel was recognized for the significant leap he made in 3D finite element (FE) model development of the spine by identifying and adapting cutting-edge technology from a completely different discipline, stereophotogrammetry used in aerial surveying, to determine load displacement behavior of intact, injured, and stabilized spinal segments. He used these techniques to generate highly-accurate 3D mapping of the spine in the FE models. More details available at prnewswire and gulfnews.
