The Engineering Research Institute’s primary mission is to provide research-related services to College faculty to increase and diversify their research portfolios.

ERI staff focus on engaging with faculty in all Engineering departments to grow research areas of strength, develop compelling responses to funding opportunities, and increase the number of competitive submissions to new agencies and large programs.

When needed, ERI provides post-award project management support to ensure smooth execution of projects and research compliance, as well as appropriate engagement with Program Managers and Sponsors to position our faculty for follow-on funding.
