Engineering Research in the Heart of the Nation's Capital

Research plays a central role in achieving our vision to become a world class center for innovative and collaborative engineering research and learning in the heart of the nation's capital. Strong research programs allow us to recruit the very best faculty, to attract outstanding graduate students, to offer exciting and challenging research opportunities to our undergraduates, and to serve society by addressing some of the most complex problems facing our nation and the world. Here in the nation's capital, surrounded by government agencies and by technology companies large and small, we have access to a vast array of possibilities for collaborations and, ultimately, for career opportunities for our students.

Our teaching and research facilities are located both on the Foggy Bottom campus in the heart of Washington, DC and at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus (VSTC), a 122 acre site in Loudoun County, Virginia. VSTC is the home of our centers of excellence in transportation safety, energy science, and high performance computing. At Foggy Bottom, the Science and Engineering Hall--a half million square feet, $300 million building--houses the engineering school as well as several science departments.

We invite you to visit our research pages to learn more about our strategic priorities and our successes.
