It is the nature of an engineer to meet challenges with curiosity and persistence until a solution arises. Right now, our planet faces no greater challenge than that presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our students and faculty meet that challenge every day when they provide clear and accurate information for the public, take on and solve key research questions rapidly and collaborate with everyone at the table trying to solve the challenge.

“CU Boulder and our college are well positioned to help manage and solve this crisis now and prevent similar catastrophes in the future,” said Associate Dean for Research Massimo Ruzzene. “The interdisciplinary and leading work we are doing around this topic is an inspiration and motivation for the journey ahead.”
