Applied research is integral to KPU’s polytechnic culture—where thought meets action—not to mention key to productive community engagement and social innovation. It allows you, our students, and faculty to apply practical knowledge and skills in real-world contexts and establish mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships with local communities, industry, and government.
The Office of Research Services (ORS) offers a broad range of opportunities within distinctive programs, and assists researchers with proposal preparation and administration of sponsored projects.
