The Army Research Lab is the nation’s premier laboratory for land forces. For more than 50 years, in laboratories belonging to the Army Materiel Command (AMC) and their antecedents in the Technical Corps, civilians have conducted the great majority of the Army’s basic science programs, whether as in-house scientists and engineers or as contractors in private industry and academia. Currently, ARL scientists and engineers are pioneering research in such areas as neuroergonomics, energetic materials and propulsion, individual warfighter protection, energy science, electronics technologies, network sciences, virtual interfaces and synthetic environments and autonomous systems.
Kansas University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering’s mission is to provide our students with a high quality education, to generate and apply knowledge, and to serve both society and the engineering profession. Their faculty members have diverse expertise in applied mechanics, biomaterials, biomechanics, computational mechanics and fluid mechanics, energy and transportation systems, as well as combustion and thermal systems. They perform research from the nanoscale through large scale systems. Many bring industrial experience to the classroom. Our dedicated staff offer superior service to support our students and faculty members.
