Engineering Design is the art and science of developing technology to improve our world. Design is critical in areas where engineering analysis alone is not sufficient to identify a unique optimal design solution. In these areas, design is used to synthesize new embodiments and approaches.
The MAE Design group is active in areas of rapid technological change and in interdisciplinary collaborations, which open new design opportunities. Areas of development include mechatronics, sensor integration, robotics, vehicle design in water/land/air, medical devices, product design, and human-machine interfaces.
