Turning discovery into meaningful impact

Revolutionary thinking—it’s part of our DNA at UD. Our first students in 1743 helped found this nation.

Today, we’re marshaling that daring spirit and our expertise in science, engineering, the social sciences, arts and humanities to address new challenges.

We’re innovating clean cars and clean fuels, giving mobility to youngsters with disabilities, conserving the precious artifacts of our collective global heritage, and creating life-changing inventions right at your fingertips—did you know our touchpad technology made your smartphone possible? Explore the exciting research we’re leading and the entrepreneurial ecosystem we’re building.
