Design is the area of engineering which most distinguishes it from the sciences. Our research focuses on understanding and improving the process of design in order to facilitate the creation of new technologies that never before existed.
With seven active faculty, the Design Engineering Lab is the largest academic mechanical engineering design research lab in the US. Our students learn the gamut of design from how to size bolts to managing a large team of engineers. The particular areas of strong research within the lab include:
While the lab is more of an organization than a location, we are centered in the north-eastern end of OSU's campus in Dearborn, Rogers, Batcheller, and Covell - with an epicenter in Dearborn 100.
The Design Engineering Lab is focused on research and education. We are an ever-changing center with continuous need for the most capable and thoughtful students and the most exciting research funding opportunities.
