When we hire new faculty members, we look for ambitious researchers who are applying emerging methods to engineer solutions to some of our world’s most pressing challenges.
Fresh faces bring new ideas
During the 2022-23 academic year, we’ve added 19 new faculty members across seven departments—including several hires who have brought established research labs with them from other institutions—further bolstering our research enterprise.
We boast an energetic faculty that draws on the latest tools, including computational and data science approaches, to address a wide range of questions.
An accomplished faculty
More have won other prestigious early career honors, such as the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the National Institutes of Health Director’s New Innovator Award, the U.S. Department of Energy Early Career Award and the Beckman Foundation’s Young Investigator Award.
Time to grow
And we’ve got plans to construct a massive new building to catalyze our research discoveries, while also expanding our enrollment to meet the growing need for engineering leaders in our state, country and world. A new state-of-the-art facility will allow us to increase our undergraduate and graduate student enrollments while propelling our researchers to develop and shape next-generation technologies.
