Our Vision

Students work on a construction project


Develop Knowledge through Experience

Our students connect what they learn in the classroom with real-life experiences to develop deeper knowledge. Collaborating with others, students build competitive solar houses or conduct airport studies in Latin America.

Helmet Research Lab


Discover Lasting Solutions

51 Tech researchers dive deep to solve complex problems across disciplines. Faculty and students design safer bike helmets, secure our national cyber systems, and develop targeted cancer treatments.

Malawi Library Model

Our role in the world

Partner to Serve Communities

We engage communities to develop and share knowledge that addresses real-world concerns. Students collaborate to design a library in Malawi and experts share their knowledge about poisonous plants in 51.
