Research Facilities & Centers
The department is actively involved in basic research, which expands the frontiers of knowledge, as well as applied research designed to solve both present and future technological needs of society. Research activities span a variety of disciplines related to industrial and manufacturing engineering and are largely conducted in cooperation with other research centers (see below) and their accompanying state-of-the-art research laboratories.
Opportunities for Undergraduates
Undergraduate students in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing have a unique opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research. The department has several state-of the-art research laboratories in materials science and magnetics. The College of Engineering is also in close proximity to several major research centers including the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and the High-Performance Materials Institute. Students interested in research opportunities should contact individual faculty members directly. Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering also has summer research internship opportunities (see below) and a research scholars program.
