ERC Research

The core mission of an Engineering Research Center is engineering research. Specifically, each ERC pursues strategic advances in complex engineered systems and systems-level technologies that have the potential to spawn whole new industries or to radically transform the product lines, processing technologies, or service delivery methodologies of current industries. The cross-disciplinary, systems-focused research in an ERC lies at the interface between the discovery-driven culture of science and the innovation-driven culture of engineering.
