Engineering research impact

Engineering research is all about driving innovation to improve society. Our chemical and petroleum engineers are extracting energy-rich hydrogen from oil reservoirs while leaving the oil and carbon emissions underground. Our geomatics researchers developed international standards and cloud technologies for the Internet of Things that allows oil and gas companies, first responders, and logistics companies to improve efficiency and safety.

Our biomedical engineers are using low-power microwaves to develop new approaches to monitoring breast cancer treatment. Developing new methods to harness natural resources that support the economy and protect the environment, creating new techniques to manipulate big data to improve safety and finding new ways to track the effects of breast cancer treatments – for our researchers, that’s only the beginning.
