The strong research program in our Department across all areas of concentration is a reflection of our high-caliber faculty, many of whom have obtained international recognition. The experimental research facilities are state-of-the-art and include photomechanic instruments for fracture and fatigue studies, optics-based material characterization techniques, as well as facilities for optical metrology, the measurement of ultra fast thermal phenomenon and thermo-optical properties, a processing and measurement facility, a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) laboratory, a manufacturing automation laboratory, and crystal growth facility. Our department also has extensive highperformance computational facilities for computational fluid dynamics, computational solid mechanics, and computer-aided geometric design.
