Scientific Research encompasses research that is of particular interest to the faculty within the various colleges of the university. It is intended to help the development and enhancement of the colleges’ educational and training missions. It also is intended to promote faculty professional and academic development, maintain current the understanding of the respective academic areas and expertise, and help in the enhancement of academic excellence for teaching and other professional duties.
Over time, various centers for scientific research are expected to evolve as funding and opportunities develop through the specific research activities of the faculty. Initially, much of this research is carried out as part of Applied Research activities, utilizing equipment and facilities of the academic laboratories.
