Mechanical Engineering faculty and students in the Russ College have a broad background but focus primarily on three areas of research: energy and the environment, materials and manufacturing, and bioengineering. Through the development of new materials, conceiving new applications for them in medical, environmental and educational settings, and bringing them to industrial scale, we create for good.
Our Research Units
Center for Advanced Materials Processing
From the metal alloys used in automobiles to the polymer pollution filters used in a nearby power plant, society depends on engineered materials. At the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), engineers focus specifically on creating and refining processes and manufacturing methods to ensure the quality of those materials.
Ohio Coal Research Center
The OCRC is one of the nation's leading academic energy research organizations developing innovative and responsible engineering solutions to issues surrounding domestic energy sources. From clean coal technology to alternative biofuels development, our energy research supports the long-term viability of both our energy resources and our natural environment.
