Research and innovation

At the College of Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences, we believe that innovation starts with experimentation.

Our innovative research initiatives have made a difference in areas such as:

  • forest restoration
  • wind mapping and alternative energy development
  • the study of pathogens and genomes

We are committed to using our research to advance sustainability initiatives and to improve the quality of our lives and communities.
