Our Team

The Center for Engineering Concepts Development consists of an interdisciplinary team of faculty, staff and students who are engaged in a broad spectrum of innovative projects of contemporary interest in research and education. Areas include energetics, sustainability, nanotechnology, design via crowdsourcing, heat transfer applications in space, autonomy and advanced computational techniques. Recently we have introduced a special course in Engineering for Social Change. If you wish to learn more about each member of the team, please click on their images for more detailed information.
