Research is an integral part of Department activities. It allows individual faculty members to stay at the leading edge of their area of specialization and to apply their knowledge to current problems in industry and government. It also provides funding for research associates and graduate students. It thus supports the education of highly trained future engineers and, in an indirect way, the teaching activities of the Department.
There are four major research areas in the Department. They are
Digital Imaging Systems
GIS and Land Tenure
Positioning, Navigation and Wireless Location
