Research at UMass Lowell

Funding is rising, faculty are being hired, and facilities are coming online.

From our earliest days as a source of brainpower for the Industrial Revolution unfolding in Lowell’s textile mills to the founding of the first plastics engineering department in the country, UMass Lowell has spent more than a century at the edge of what is possible. Today, more than ever, UMass Lowell is emerging as a leader in bridging the gap between research and solutions that change people’s lives.
