Research for a Reason
The centers work synergistically with researchers across the university and public and private sector stakeholders in the broader community in the translation of knowledge into practical and actionable solutions and tools, through the application of information technology.
The research and development focus helps solve real-world problems. Sustainability, healthcare, new economies, new technologies, new processes, new products, new ideas—those are today’s challenges. We’re taking on these challenges and building research partnerships among university students, faculty, government research labs, and the private sector to effectively change the world for the better. We’re hands-on. Both undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to the world’s body of knowledge.
