At the University of Delaware, our biggest frontier is the unknown. Powered by curiosity, we’re solving mysteries, tackling problems and pioneering new technologies — in service to the world. Our discoveries and impacts are all around you: in life-saving medicines to the Mars spacesuit, in your phone’s touch-screen technology to the priceless objects of global heritage we’ve helped to preserve, from the Declaration of Independence to works of art by Van Gogh and Wyeth. We are a doctoral university with very highest research activity, a designation held by less than three percent of U.S. colleges, and we are on a relentless pursuit of excellence.
