Research and Innovation

The United States of America is driven by innovations which advance ideas, products, and processes leading to job creation. These jobs, and often new industries spinning from these innovations, contribute to our nation's prosperity, well-being and security. In the past half-century, innovation itself has been increasingly driven by educated people and the knowledge they produce. The College of Engineering at Tech is embarked on a trajectory that leads the university as an emerging research institution with an interconnected approach for student success in education and research. Research and innovation are integral parts of our vision to produce students who are capable of solving societal problems.
