Welcome to the Computational Design Laboratory website. We are in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in the College of Engineering, and a part of the Design Engineering Group.

Research Overview

Our research focuses on advancing fundamental computational methodology for the design, analysis, and operation of complex engineered systems. We are currently using our tools to address challenges in enabling self-aware unmanned aerial vehicles, exploiting the breadth of available information sources for conceptual design of advanced aircraft, and the design of engineered materials and material systems.
