Acting Associate Dean (Research)

Welcome to the Research Office website. Please take a moment to explore our site to learn more about our leading-edge research our faculty members are currently undertaking. 


My name is Gregory Kopp and I joined Western Engineering in 1997 as a professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Our faculty members conduct leading-edge research in topical areas that benefit society. Areas of special expertise include: energy, biomedical applications of mechatronics, natural disaster mitigation and management, water technologies, nanotechnology, and much more. Students at the undergraduate and graduate level benefit from this knowledge, as faculty members draw from their research to teach in our classrooms. To explore the different areas of research that our faculty members specialize in, please visit our research website.

The Research Office is committed to supporting faculty members as they endeavor to pioneer with their research. We are also able to bridge the link between faculty members and industry.
