Our engineers have built the future. We helped to pioneer the plug-in hybrid car and invent broadband communications.
on fossil fuels
Widely known as the “father of the plug-in hybrid,” Professor Andrew Frank has championed this approach to fuel-efficient vehicles that combines gasoline engines with electric motors running on rechargeable batteries.
In 1997, when broadband communications and the “World Wide Web” were both in their infancy, two UC Davis professors and a graduate student came up with a better way to route data in fiber optic networks.
