Research Excellence Connected to Learning, Innovation and Service to Society

High quality research and graduate education are central to the mission of the College of Engineering at The University of Iowa. The college is proud of its production of a substantial volume of externally funded research and of its role in preparing engineering leaders who are the quality of graduate education in the college among the top 25% institutions nationally.

The college seeks to focus its efforts and resources in those areas of unique strength where true distinction is attainable. These research areas are based on substantial faculty strengths in the college and are well positioned for addressing emerging national needs. In addition, the college is committed to using our research products for the benefit of the state and nation through aggressive technology transfer programs, active involvement in economic development programs, and publication in the open literature.
