The L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science has active and ongoing research programs that are distinctive in several areas. The research mission of the college seeks to expand our understanding of fundamental engineering and computer science phenomena, as well as to apply science and engineering to seek solutions to many of today's difficult and interdisciplinary technology problems. We are a research-based academic institution that supports and encourages involvement of all students (graduate and undergraduate) in research.
We have thriving research programs that are interdisciplinary, spanning several important engineering and computer science disciplines including environmental systems, systems and information assurance, electrical engineering, civil engineering, biomedical and chemical engineering, and aerospace and mechanical engineering.
The research programs of the college are housed in individual faculty member laboratories as well as research institutes and centers across campus.
Specific descriptions of research programs of individual departments and faculty can be found on their websites while details about the research centers associated with the college can be found at these centers' sites.
Graduate studies are central to our research programs. Ongoing master's and doctoral programs exist in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science.
There are several institutes and centers that contribute to the research enterprise of the college including the Center of Excellence in Environmental Systems, The NYSTAR Awarded STAR Center for Environmental Quality Systems, CASE center, the Institute for Sensory Research, the Center for Environmental Systems Engineering, and several others.
