Faculty and students in the Baskin School of Engineering pursue novel, visionary research that leads to positive societal impact. On this page, you can explore some of the areas of research in which we excel, and watch videos from our faculty labs.

Research Areas

Uncertainty Aware Robot Control

Dejan Milutinović and his graduate students study the control of robotic and autonomous vehicle systems, especially in the presence of uncertainty.

UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute

In 2000, UC Santa Cruz made history with the Human Genome Project. Today, we're using the power of genomics to benefit people and the planet.

Robotics and Control Engineering

Robotics and Control Engineering is among the most interdisciplinary specialities offered at UCSC.

Cyber Physical Systems

Professor Ricardo Sanfelice and his Hybrid Systems Lab work to develop Cyber Physical Systems that incorporate networks, computers, and physics, applied to aerial vehicles.

Statistics and Statistical Modeling

The BSOE Statistics faculty, one of the best applied Bayesian departments in the world, uses statistical models to create real world applications from massive amounts of data.

Bioelectronic and Bioprotonic Devices

Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Marco Rolandi is researching the use of technological devices to mimic biological processes.

Internets of the Future

Faculty and students in the BSOE Computer Engineering Department are researching and developing applications that will enable the internet to evolve and get to the next level.

Interactive Systems for Individuals with Special Needs

Sri Kurniawan is leading her student to research and develop games and applications to help people with special needs.

Applied Optics and Optofluidics

Professor Holger Schmidt gives a tour of his labs and discusses his research in optofluidics. By working together, Schmidt and his UC Santa Cruz colleagues have discovered important biomedical applications for this technology.

Applied Mathematics

The use of mathematical methods and reasoning to solve real-world problems of a scientific or decision-making nature in a wide variety of subjects.
