保护 & 改善我们的世界
We're proud of our long tradition of cultivating innovation in science 和 technology. Our researchers use their ideas to contribute not only to their fields, 对他们的社区也是如此. DU student 和 faculty researchers have helped increase the underst和ing of the relationship between momentum 和 light, developed a new imaging system to measure oxygen levels within the human body 和 worked to improve cyber-security technology.
We do everything we can to help our student researchers make their contributions felt both locally 和 globally. Whether this means creating a plan to protect Colorado ecosystems or using a U.S. Department of Energy grant to improve solar technology worldwide, our students have the opportunity to use their unique perspectives 和 skills to improve our world.
We have a variety of facilities for scientific research 和 experimentation, 包括一个全新的110,000 square foot building housing the Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering 和 Computer 科学. 旨在扩大我们的工程研究工作.
We're working on exp和ing our engineering 和 computer science 项目 by 30 percent, which will increase current research in fields such as cyber security, 软件工程, 可持续能源分配和机电一体化.
DU undergraduate engineering students teamed up with Nike to assess the stability of athletic shoes. 医学与工程相结合, their work could help reduce injury 和 improve performance.
The Ritchie School's 创新楼 fosters experimentation 和 creativity. The interdisciplinary co-working zone features an incubator, innovation lab 和 event space.
Student 和 faculty researchers consistently confirm our belief in the power of creativity with their unique ideas. A major current project underway at DU is the investigation of the use of carbon nanotubes, 一种比人类头发细一万倍的材料, as a component of air-conditioning 和 refrigeration systems. The project has the potential to greatly lessen the environmental impact of such systems, 和 could very well lead to the most significant advances in refrigeration technology since the late 18th century.
Past accomplishments include using insights gained from playing Chinese Checkers to create a new method of searching computer memory 和 developing games to improve early math education. These are just a few of the unconventional 和 creative solutions our researchers use in their work. 通过鼓励像这样的个人想法, we can maximize our chance to arrive at conclusions that would be impossible to reach by conventional means.
技术 & 科研机构
机器人 & 人类福祉的传感器
机器人 & 人类福祉的传感器 (ROSE-HUB) works to develop robotic 和 sensor technology to improve human lives on a variety of levels. The Center explores robotics for surgery 和 rehabilitation, 天气预报, 改善农业和电网, 和网络安全. ROSE-HUB's objective is to create systems that will impact our society on a broad level 和 improve well-being for all.
The University of Denver Aerosol Group develops 和 builds technology for the study of aerosols, 或者是悬浮在气体中的粒子. These versatile tools are frequently used to help underst和 the effects 和 extent of climate change, 臭氧消耗和污染. 气溶胶集团的技术已经到达了北极, 南极洲和它们之间的许多地方, 并被美国宇航局使用, NOAA和国家大气研究中心.
Before Amazon can deliver packages by drone, serious technological issues need to be addressed. The DU 无人系统研究所 works to tackle these issues by developing a super light weight radar system that can be used to sense 和 avoid, 和 by providing significant technical advances to automated flight capabilities. Currently, the Institute is working on issues of lift 和 drag with an unconventional wing design.
