The College of Engineering engages intellectual explorers to help address some of the world’s greatest challenges. Our Office of Research Development & Support helps recruit, develop, support, and retain strong faculty scholars.

Pages in this section introduce winners of a prestigious research award, our state-of-the-art facilities, core services available to faculty and the public, and wide-ranging physical and social science research. Below, you’ll also find COVID-19 updates, and learn about student research opportunities.

Making an Impact

Here we advance inclusive, impactful research scholarship to extend knowledge and serve society.

Researchers collaborate with students in classrooms and labs, partner across disciplines and institutions, and join with industry, government, and community members for regional, national, and international benefit.

COVID-19 Update

Boise State has returned to a full range of scholarly activities as part of its response to the pandemic. Our Research Restart plan and its requirements for researchers help us to do so safely.

Student Research

We have a long history of providing substantive research opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduate participation keeps students engaged, in school, and well positioned for advanced educational and workforce opportunities. The Boise State Institute for Inclusive and Transformative Scholarship provides program and resource oversight for new and emerging student scholars (they support faculty, too).

Lab directory listings show how students engage in many of our labs, and often with nationally or internationally recognized collaborators. Feel free to contact faculty to discuss their research, and any opportunities available to students.
