College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Notre Dame is a community of scholars where teaching and research are integrated at all levels of the educational process. The Catholic character of Notre Dame demands that all at the institution actively seek the truth and be open to a variety of viewpoints that might assist in leading to that truth. Our over-riding goal is to be amongst the very best engineering institutions in the country with all engineering students graduating in a four-year period.

There is a specific five-year program to obtain two degrees; a BS in any of the College of Engineering programs and a BA in any of the College of Arts and Letters programs. Other dual-degree BS programs are possible, as is a five-year BS/MBA program, with permission. There are a number of international study opportunities for a summer, semester, or full year, either through the office of international programs or the College of Engineering.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Center for Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics

An interdisciplinary research initiative focused on developing diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for commercialization. AD&T researchers discover, design, and test micro- and nano-scale devices for precision medicine and environmental monitoring. These systems can capture and detect a few distinct molecules, providing more accurate information for medical diagnoses or environmental assessments.

Center for Environmental Science and Technology

As a cooperative effort between the Colleges of Engineering and Science, the center fosters interdisciplinary environmental research and education by providing cutting edge analytical technologies needed to address environmental problems.

Center for Flow Physics and Control

The center builds on existing funded research and historical precedent of the original Aero-lab and Hessert Center, while consolidating common core interests and abilities to address larger focussed efforts. The overarching theme is flow diagnostics, prediction and control, that involves a process loop of computation, experiment and modeling. There is a strong emphasis on industry partnerships to identify flow control applications that can have an immediate impact, be technologically viable, and of economic interest. Core areas consist of aero-acoustics, aero-optics, fluid-structure interactions, multi-phase flows, and intelligent flow control.

Center for Low Energy Systems Technology

The Center for Low Energy Systems Technology (LEAST) is a microelectronics research center funded by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to support the continued growth and leadership of the U.S. semiconductor industry. Its research mission is to develop low-voltage and steep subthreshold swing components for beyond-CMOS electronic systems.

Center for Microfluidics and Medical Diagnostics

The Center for Microfluidics and Medical Diagnostics facilitates the transfer of ideas created at the University of Notre Dame in the areas of environmental sensors, medical diagnostics, and drug delivery to industrial partners.
Researchers are also developing new techniques for the preparation and delivery of therapeutic treatments of the future.

Center for Nanoscience and Technology

The Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano) explores new device concepts and associated architectures that are enabled by novel phenomena on the nanometer scale. The Center catalyzes multidisciplinary research and education in nanoelectronics, molecular electronics, nano-bio and bio-fluidic microstructures, circuits, and architectures. The Center facilitates collaborations between participating faculty from the departments of electrical engineering, computer science and engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry and physics.

Center for Shock Wave Processing of Advanced Reactive Materials

The Center for Shock Wave Processing of Advanced Reactive Materials aims to predict the behavior of heterogeneous materials, specifically the dynamics of their shock induced chemo-thermo-mechanical transformations and resulting material properties. The center's full system demonstration problem is to simulate the shock-induced synthesis of a nickel-aluminum composite in a Taylor impact experiment. Moreover, through the adaptive Exascale simulations, center faculty aspire to predict conditions for synthesis of novel materials-by-design and provide prognoses of non-equilibrium structures that will form under shock wave processing. In particular, center faculty plan to identify conditions under which researchers can synthesize cubic boron nitride (c-BN). c-BN is not found in nature and therefore can only be produced synthetically. The hardness of c-BN is inferior only to diamond, but its thermal and chemical stability is superior. Because of these properties, c-BN surpasses diamond in high temperature mechanical applications. Shock synthesis of c-BN enabled by Exascale predictive computations with V&V/UQ will be a significant scientific achievement.

Center for the Materials Science of Actinides

One of the 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers established in 2009 by the Department of Energy Office of Science, the Center for the Materials Science of Actinides at the University of Notre Dame is composed of five universities and three national laboratories. Research in the center is focused on actinide-based materials and the properties of these materials in extreme environments, with a particular emphasis on energy-related issues.

Notre Dame Center for Sustainable Energy

The Center is a new initiative that unites researchers devoted to developing new energy technologies to meet a compelling national and international challenge. The work includes the study of energy efficiency in the internal combustion cycle, safe nuclear waste storage, clean coal utilization, CO2 separation, storage and usage and the use of renewable resources in newer ways.
