Villanova Center for the Advancement of Sustainability in Engineering - VCASE


Enabling a sustainable future through interdisciplinary research on resilient infrastructure, energy, and the environment.

To accomplish this mission, the Villanova Center for the Advancement of Sustainability in Engineering (VCASE) will:

  • Spearhead the College of Engineering’s collaborative sustainability research
  • Support and encourage faculty to collaborate across disciplines and university boundaries
  • Work to create opportunities for students to engage in research and enhance their knowledge and understanding of engineering sustainability principles
  • Leverage and support Villanova’s sustainability initiatives

The Villanova Center for the Advancement of Sustainability in Engineering (VCASE) was launched in Fall 2009 as a center of excellence within the College of Engineering. Faculty and students involved with VCASE support sustainable and resilient engineering goals by performing research in areas that include alternative and renewable energy, biomass resources and conversion technologies, environmental engineering, sustainable infrastructure and materials, and sustainable stormwater management. VCASE faculty researchers also host industry and community outreach activities to foster and enhance a spirit of sustainability.
