Taking on today’s pressing challenges – intractable and emerging diseases, cybersecurity, aging infrastructures, economic uncertainties and big data management – requires expertise from many disciplines. Arizona Environment focuses engineering research on far-reaching, interdisciplinary solutions for high priority societal issues.
UArizona engineering faculty and students collaborate with researchers across the university and around the globe on projects that improve quality of life. Arizona Environment focuses on sustainability and infrastructure, such as water treatment and reuse, bioremediation, biofuels and renewables, infrastructure networks including water, transportation and energy; our research also focuses on advanced manufacturing, such as materials testing, nanotechnology and computer modeling. Our unique approach to resilient design uses an interdisciplinary, systems-based approach to prepare for a future that is anticipates and prepares for rapid change in social and physical systems.
