The School of Engineering is where research, design, and building come together to work for innovation. Engineering students take courses in a variety of subjects, including electricity, materials science, mechanics, and thermodynamics. Faculty members work on the cutting edge of research in their respective disciplines. The research has wide applications in the field of sustainability, from more efficient LEDs to viable and cost-effective carbon sequestration and storage (CSS). Efforts are also active in the areas of grid-integrated distributed storage, district level sustainability strategies, and solar thermal for industrial processes.
