UConn Engineering’s research capabilities can be broadly classified into the following four interdisciplinary areas: Advanced Manufacturing & Materials; Sustainability, Energy & the Environment; Security & Infrastructure; and Biomedical Engineering & Genomics. In addition, cross-cutting expertise in Complex Systems Engineering; High Performance Computing; and Creativity, Innovation & Entrepreneurship integrates and promotes advanced multidisciplinary research and technology development programs.

Our research centers and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities foster research excellence by providing investigators access to outstanding equipment and technical support staff. Our Technology Park initiatives also help faculty, centers, and their industrial collaborators transition academic discoveries to real-world applications.

With tens of millions of dollars in annual research expenditures, and over 100 faculty submitting nearly 500 grant proposals per year, our School is one of the most research-active at the University of Connecticut.
