The College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Grand Canyon University provides students with unique and exciting opportunities to engage in faculty research, design and development projects. Take advantage of some of these options to work alongside faculty while gaining experience and a competitive edge for internships, graduate schools and careers:


If your area of interest is in health, nutrition, kinesiology, biomechanical analysis, sports performance or cognitive strength, consider a project in the Performance Optimization, Wellness and Exercise Research (POWER) program. Students will contribute to research while working with a variety of research-grade testing devices.

Smart Urban Fabrics

Smart Urban Fabrics (SMURF) is a project designed around connecting pieces of equipment to discover the impact and trends of different factors on the surrounding urban fabric, including the environment, communication, knowledge transfer and more. Systems will combine electronic, computer, sensory, engineering and software components.

Canyon Neuroscience Center

The Canyon Neuroscience Center investigates questions regarding the function of the brain and nervous system. Approaches include human clinical studies and cell and molecular studies using tissue culture models.

Anatomy and Biotechnology Group

The Anatomy and Biotechnology group aims to compile a database of cadaveric, histological photographs, art work and clinical pathological case development for use in the creation of a human cadaveric photographic atlas. Long-term goals center on completing projects pushing the biotechnological limits of 3D printing, such as working with biological materials and structures.
