How AAU Makes a Difference
Founded in 1900, the Association of American Universities comprises 62 distinguished research universities across the United States that continually advance society through education, research, and discovery. Our universities earn the majority of competitively awarded federal funding for academic research and are educating tomorrow’s visionary leaders and global citizens.
'Tiny House' Prototype Designed for Temporary Disaster ReliefStudents in the University of Kansas School of Engineering are designing and building new “tiny homes” that will provide safe, comfortable shelter to families that survive hurricanes and other catastrophic storms.
Building Robots that Mimic the Movements of AnimalsBio-inspired robotics has emerged as an important specialization within the field, according to Satyandra “S.K.” Gupta, who holds a Smith International Professorship in Mechanical Engineering at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.
