Research & Impact

Ellen Kuhl’s lab in the HIVE

Students and faculty at the Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering (ICME) conduct groundbreaking research using advanced mathematical and computing capabilities to better understand and address complex problems.

While research at ICME is interdisciplinary by nature, with topics spanning departments and fields, it is united by the goal of creating improved models and methods to advance engineering and science applications. From enabling safe testing for hypersonic flight to developing a new approach for understanding complex networks, the impact of our research can be seen across disciplines and far beyond the lab.
