Research forms the backbone of everything we do in the Ritchie School. The principles of creativity and interdisciplinary collaboration are central to our research, with the goal of improving human lives through the promotion of better technology. Our researchers work to improve social robotics, power system protection, and human movement biomechanics. We impact fields ranging from cardiac health to cybersecurity to robotics.
Our labs and facilities bolster the capabilities of our students and researchers. In addition to cutting-edge resources and equipment, we are also the home to the Knoebel Institute of Healthy Aging which promotes collaborative aging research across campus.
