All of our faculty members have doctoral degrees from major research universities.  They develop and sustain high-quality research programs and make every effort to involve students in their research as much as possible.  Many of our faculty members have national and international visibility in their respective fields of expertise.  Our faculty members have obtained prestigious research grants from federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense and the Department of Energy, and from high-tech industries. In addition, there are two research centers in the Department.

In Spring 2020, Dr. Arash Komaee received the prestigious NSF CAREER award for his research in the design, optimization, and feedback control. He proposes revolutionary research in the development of non-contact manipulators with medical, biomedical and nanotechnology applications.
