The Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering focuses on creating key technologies that serve the State of Nevada, the Southwest region of the United States, and the world. Our goal is to expand knowledge in these technologies and provide benefits to society.
While our faculty members pursue innovative solutions to many challenges, they are particularly focused on the following research areas and have established a strong national and international presence:
- Big Data Research
- Biomedical Engineering
- Environmental Engineering and Water Resources
- National Security Engineering
- Renewable Energy
- Unmanned Aerial Systems
Currently, we are establishing strong collaborative ties with industrial partners to encourage transfer and commercialization of these technologies in order to create new business opportunities and build the economic viability of Nevada.
Our research programs offer exceptional opportunities to our graduate and undergraduate students. Through research, our students are provided with the needed resources to obtain an education in a friendly and interdisciplinary environment, which prepares them for a professional and productive life.
Please feel free to contact the Dean's Office for more information on partnerships or collaborative opportunities.
