Student Research

We offer students valuable research opportunities on par with Research I universities and even graduate schools. Students have access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure and laser labs for pulsed laser deposition and ablation (both PLD and concurrent MAPLE) of soft and hard materials for photonic and device fabrication. We have trained many students in advanced research projects related to the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and the Army Research Office. These real-world projects can involve working with innovative patents and inventions you won’t find elsewhere.


By working closely with faculty, many of our undergraduate students publish in peer-reviewed journals, giving them a huge head start in their careers. Dillard students have co-authored publications in Composites Part B Engineering, American Journal of Materials Science, and Optics Express, among others. Our program offers unrivaled support for student research and turns students into independent researchers ready for graduate school or taskforce fulltime employment.
