The University of Bridgeport is growing as a research enterprise amidst a diversity of interdisciplinary academic programs and an increasing number of research labs designed to support collaborative research endeavors. These endeavors highlight our role as a think tank for new ventures and a 21st century learning center, with career-oriented, hands-on offerings in the world of STEM-oriented markets, emerging interdisciplinary fields, and international programming.
A significant number of grant awards has led to an array of funded projects, with granted equipment, services, and licenses rounding out awards that are critically important to developing research efforts. In addition, various projects are underway in partnership with other institutions and industries.
Add to that our highly multicultural student body — 1,400+ undergraduate and graduate students who are drawn to UB from around the world — and you have research that grows each discipline’s body of knowledge, responds to the call for new scientific applications that extend their reach beyond borders, and prepares our students for a seamless transition to continued education and a diverse, global workforce.
