Understanding NSF Research: Engineering
Engineers are making this future a reality through basic research in areas such as advanced manufacturing, health care, sustainability, infrastructure and more. To speed innovations to the market, NSF also supports entrepreneurship, small business growth and industry collaboration.
Engineers improve people's lives with smart transportation, prosthetic devices, faster computers and everything in between.
Fundamental engineering research for improving health leads to the creation of new drug delivery systems, advanced monitoring and diagnostic systems and assistive technologies.
Infrastructure research increases the security, resilience and intelligence of the nation's buildings and transportation systems, water and power supplies, and communications and cyber networks.
Discoveries in advanced manufacturing materials, processes and systems promise faster and smarter production that is more efficient, precise and sustainable for the benefit of U.S. industry and quality of life.
Energy and Environment
Investigations into energy and environment give people options for low-cost, sustainable practices and technologies that protect natural resources while meeting essential human needs and supporting economic progress.
