Swanson School of Engineering Research

The Swanson School of Engineering has excelled in basic and applied research over the years and is on the forefront of technology in several important areas including energy systems, sustainability, biomedical engineering, nano-engineering, computational modeling, advanced manufacturing, and engineering materials development. We are building upon our research strengths by hiring faculty in these areas and creating new collaborations within and beyond the school.

Our Center for Energy, Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation, Petersen Institute for Nano-Science & -Engineering, Center for Medical Innovation, and our new Center for Advanced Manufacturing encompass many of these research areas. We are a designated Engineering Research Center by the National Science Foundation as part of a five-year, $18.5 million project, in partnership along with the University of Cincinnati and the project’s lead institution, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.

Inquiries should be directed to the School’s Associate Dean for Research, Dr. David Vorp.
