Research and Outreach

Our Impact

The College of Engineering is a key contributor to research and educational programs that support Nevada's economic diversification and develop new technologies for our region and the nation.

The College's approach to economic development starts with K-12 outreach, introducing young students to engineering and preparing them to study STEM subjects in college. Our undergraduate programs graduate skilled workers ready to take high-tech jobs with companies in the region.

Our research programs address critical areas of our time such as cyber security, infrastructure, autonomous systems and renewable energy.
