School of MIME Research Clusters
Research efforts in the School of MIME fall into five interdisciplinary clusters:
- Renewable Energy
researchers focus on developing products and systems to address the critical environmental, societal, and economic issues the world is facing today and pave the way for a better tomorrow.
- Human-Centered Engineering
research is concerned with analysis and design of systems where human performance and experience are primary considerations.
- Next-Generation Materials
research in MIME focuses primarily on structural materials, biomaterials, electronic ceramics, energy materials, sensors, and bulk and thin film materials processing.
- Advanced Manufacturing
research in MIME addresses four broad areas: manufacturing, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, energy applications, and process control.
researchers focus on design, modeling and control of systems that observe, move within, interact with, and act upon their environment. Such systems include mobile robots, micro-aerial vehicles and large active-sensor networks.
