About the Ray W. Herrick Laboratories

Mission: An institution dedicated to graduate education and engineering research with emphasis on technology transfer to industry.

Vision: Overcome barriers between knowledge creation, transfer, and utilization in engineering research, industry application, and graduate education.

The main technical areas are:

  1. Thermal Systems and Air Quality
  2. Noise and Vibration Control
  3. Electromechanical Systems: controls, signal processing, sensing, estimation,diagnostics and prognostics.
  4. Modeling of Human Response for Machine and System Optimization
