Welcome to the Engineering Research Toolkit.
Your Key to Resources Supporting your Research at Washington University and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
“Inherently, engineering is about both exploring and creating — understanding phenomena both natural and man-made and then advancing our ability to impact those worlds. We both produce new knowledge that changes the world and educates students so they can follow us, exploring and creating in a world we cannot yet imagine.”

Got an idea for science and engineering research? Send it to the NSF 2026 Idea Machine!
If you’ve ever had an idea about how the National Science Foundation (NSF) could transform fundamental research, a huge window of opportunity is about to open. From Aug. 31, 2018 through Oct. 26, 2018, the foundation will open the entry window for its first-ever NSF 2026 Idea Machine, a competition that gives entrants a chance to help inform the agenda for basic research, through the Nation’s 250th anniversary in 2026 and beyond.
NSF is looking for fresh ideas — large in scope and different from what the foundation already does. These ideas should address compelling challenges in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Read more here.
