About McCormick Research
Research at McCormick today crosses disciplines and defies boundaries in pursuit of solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.
What began 100 years ago as an engineering school with two tracks — civil engineering and mechanical-electrical engineering — has flourished and grown into a world-class research institution with eight engineering departments, 180 professors, and a host of research programs whose results affect millions of people around the world.
It’s engineering in the best sense of the word: entrepreneurial and cross-disciplinary. In these pages you’ll find a sampling of the types of research conducted at McCormick that are making an impact today.
