A: Hackers, cyberterrorists and malware creators are becoming sophisticated at breaking encrypted information. Quantum physics offers the potential of cryptography that is impenetrable, saving businesses billions in intellectual property and personal information value. Innovations in biomedical engineering will improve patient care and quality of life, including advanced sensors for diagnostic applications, nanoparticles for precision drug delivery, medical imaging that more precisely defines the boundaries of a tumor at safer dosage levels, and functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) for better understanding of how the brain processes information.

Q: How do you suggest the business community utilize these new engineering trends?

A: At OU, we're working with industry to identify current and future needs that can improve products or processes. We seek to build strong relationships and collaborations with practitioners and to work on industry-posed development problems and research questions. Through such projects, our students gain valuable experiential learning in interdisciplinary teamwork and creative thinking.
