Advanced science.  Applied technology.


Work With Us

We offer multidisciplinary, problem-solving services in a variety of areas in the engineering and physical sciences. As an independent and impartial nonprofit that performs applied contract research and development, we are focused on pursuing innovation and excellence for the benefit of our clients. As part of a long-held tradition, patent rights arising from sponsored research can be assigned to the client; SwRI generally retains the right to Institute-sponsored research. We strive to ensure our products and services conform to the highest quality standards and have achieved multiple quality accreditations and certifications.
