University Research

The ESTEEM Program works with Notre Dame faculty in the Colleges of Science and Engineering as well as with the Office of Technology Transfer to identify research with commercial potential. These projects are sourced prior to the start of the Program and then presented to the incoming class. Alternatively, the ESTEEM staff will work with the students to identify research they are passionate about and then approach faculty members conducting similar research to explore possible capstone thesis opportunities.

Recent University Research projects include:

  • the development of a cloud-based software system to efficiently provide quality Emergency Operation Center training in the U.S.;
  • a plan to bring a medical cure to market for Niemann-Pick Disease type C; and
  • addressing residential water filtration challenges by providing high quality and cost-effective replacement filters using charge mosaic membrane technology.
