Research Centers

At Illinois, interdisciplinary collaboration is a part of our research culture.  Our research centers combine the breadth and depth of experience on our core team with strong collaborations with other units to explore all facets of our vision and confirm the validity of our approaches. 

These centers share the common goals of providing superior research capabilities in the fundamental engineering sciences in collaboration with industrial and governmental laboratories. They support undergraduate and graduate student education and enhance rapid technology transfer from the University to industry.
