Speaking about the development and ongoing growth of the NDTL, Scott C. Morris, Research Director and Associate Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, said, “The University of Notre Dame – and the State of Indiana – have long recognized the importance and value of the aerospace industry to the United States’ economy. Here at ND Turbo, we are committed to keeping the United States competitive in this area by advancing the gas turbine engine industry through the fundamental and applied research we undertake, the undergraduate and graduate students we educate, and the collaborative partnerships with our City and State. I am excited to watch the Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory grow and I invite any interested partners to contact us for more information.”

Morris discusses the Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory’s technical capabilities, its collaborative atmosphere, and the future of the facility in a new video.
