Interdisciplinary Excellence Built On World-Class Knowledge

The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering has an active research faculty, conducting research over a wide range of topics.  The School supports the vast majority of graduate students to conduct their research.  Many graduate students are also supported in the research Institutes, Laboratories, and Centers associated with the school.  Often opportunities exist for undergraduate students to work with faculty on research projects.

MME’s faculty have formed both formal and informal named research groups, the research groups provide a structure to conduct world-class research in a concentrated area. When a research group grows to include a large diverse group of researchers or have extensive specialized equipment, a formal university research Center, Institute, or Laboratory (CIL) may be formed.

Here is a list of the Centers, Laboratories, Institutes and Groups that MME Faculty are associated with:
