Research & Impact
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.
ICME students participate in a wide array of interdisciplinary research led by faculty from 20 departments both in and outside the School of Engineering.
A Center of Collaboration.
ICME Affiliated Faculty represent all nine Engineering departments and work with ICME students in fluid dynamics, design, molecular dynamics, ocean flows, groundwater simulation, graph theory and network algorithms, graphics, parallel programming, and many other engineering problems.
From the HANA Immersive Visualization Environment to diverse HPC infrastructure, ICME offers access to advanced technologies and resources for innovation.
Integral to our research, partnerships with corporate, nonprofit, and government organizations foster valuable insights on opportunities, problems, and solutions with real-world impact.
Diverse and Interdisciplinary
ICME PhD & MS students’ research is diverse and interdisciplinary ranging from bioinformatics, geosciences, computational finance, and more.
