Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2019

Convergence by Design

Welcome to the Spring 2019 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

Academia is on the cusp of change in how we shape research and educational programs, and these efforts place Lehigh in the vanguard of institutions leading the way; in many respects, it’s all about convergence. The National Science Foundation (NSF) defines convergence research as “research driven by a specific and compelling problem” that involves “deep integration across disciplines.” At Lehigh, we live convergence, from our integrated undergraduate programs to our Interdisciplinary Research Institutes and everywhere in between.

This issue of Resolve highlights key initiatives that embody the concept. To solve complex research problems, we are focusing on societal needs and integrating knowledge, methods, and expertise from a breadth of disciplines to catalyze scientific discovery and technological innovation. Our students experience these challenges head on through their immersion in the resulting impact-driven ecosystem.
