Maha Membership

The Maha Fluid Power Research Center is recognized as a leader in innovative methods to research and apply fluid power technology. We conduct research on existing technical challenges, explore new application fields, and promote industrial collaborations.

Our faculty researchers bring their expertise to all aspects of fluid power - from computer modeling to real-world experimentation – and apply that knowledge to hydraulic pumps, motors, and systems. With faculty from the Colleges of Engineering and Agriculture, we can partner with you to provide solutions and new technology for all your fluid power needs.

By becoming a member of the Maha Fluid Power Research Center, you will have access to world-leading fluid power research, a wide network of professionals, and a group of talented prospective employees in the field.
