The faculty of Trinity’s Engineering department have a variety of research interests and work in collaboration with Trinity students, other Trinity faculty, as well as with colleagues across the region, country, and globe. Their research includes such diverse subjects as digital signal and image processing, educational robots, computational modeling of neural networks, biosignal analysis, electrophysiology, optical diagnostics, combustion reactions, cardiovascular system dynamics, hydrodynamics, microfluidics, and wireless & mobile communication, among others. Trinity students have the opportunity to assist faculty members with their research which often leads to the publishing of papers and/or student presentations at professional conferences.
