Sensor research started at UD around 12 years ago and has since become the research institute’s fastest growing research areas, according to UD.

Some of UDRI’s remaining departments received new names. UDRI also received a new logo as part of a re-branding effort.

The reorganization was part of the institute’s response to years of record-breaking growth in research.

UDRI performs about 90 percent of sponsored research at the university and saw a 60 percent revenue growth over the last four years, according to UD.

“This reorganization will better prepare us to stay agile and expand our capabilities in new as well as in legacy research areas,” UDRI director Allan Crasto said in a prepared statement.
