Associate Dept. Head for Graduate Studies Dr. Todd Bandhauer at REACH Colab

Bandhauer laboratory: large-scale experiments in realistic settings​

Graduate students in Todd Bandhauer’s laboratory get unique research experiences they’re unlikely to get other places, including lessons in engineering economics, technical design, and analysis. 

Bandhauer’s Research End Market and Commercialization Hub is in the aptly named Powerhouse Energy Institute where practical demonstrations of technology are life-size – at a scale that’s found in industry and much larger than the typical academic research laboratory. 

In addition to learning to work as a team, his students are getting lessons in engineering economics, technical design and analysis. Ultimately, they get to build something big and cool.

“That’s one of the great things about being at a land-grant university. Students that come here get a lot more hands-on experience and they’re much better prepared to make a significant impact once they leave.”
