The college feels that the biggest problems that humanity faces in the realms of health and medicine are best tackled in a multidisciplinary fashion and engineering has a lot to bring to the table. College investigators wish to engage with researchers in a broad spectrum of fields to begin addressing these areas of concern.
Some of the areas of research expertise that the college hopes to bring to bear on these problems include:
- biomaterial design and manufacturing
- systems modeling
- image processing
- air and water quality, especially in urban settings
- wearable devices
