Core Research Areas
Biomedical engineering research at the University of Delaware refers to the application of engineering principles and techniques to the human body and medical field.
One of the biggest challenges in today's world is sustainably generating, converting, transporting, storing and using energy.
Composites and advanced materials research within the deparment covers broad areas encompassing advanced materials for fuel cell applications, nanomaterials and their integration in multifunctional composites, and virtual simulations of manufacturing processes.
The emergence of nanotechnology, which deals with the manipulation of materials at the atomic and molecular scales, has enabled the development of new materials and devices that exhibit novel properties.
Among the main motivations for designing, controlling and deploying robots is to replace humans in "dull, dirty and dangerous" jobs.
