Center for Applied Physics Studies (CAPS)

CAPS provides a world-class research and education environment that integrates engineering and physics disciplines, creating opportunities for interdisciplinary studies, sharing resources, and transferring technology from basic science to applications. Faculty participate in large-scale projects hosted by national and international research facilities and collaborate with other centers on campus.

Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science (CBERS)

CBERS faculty are internationally acclaimed for interdisciplinary biomedical research. Labs within the center focus on biosignal and bioimage acquisition and processing, biosensors, drug delivery, cell culture, tissue engineering, cancer detection, stem cells, and gene technology. The Center has partnerships with academic institutions, medical centers, and industry.

Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM)

The IfM is an interdisciplinary research environment that provides education and training to the next generation of scientists and engineers, and services to academic and industrial users. Faculty specialize in advanced manufacturing materials, energy and environmental technologies, and nano-scale fabrication.

Trenchless Technology Center (TTC)

The TTC is a cooperative research center for academia, government, and industry. The center’s mission is to advance trenchless technology by serving as an independent source of knowledge, research, and education in the field. The TTC utilizes a three-pronged approach to accomplish its mission: research & development, education, and technology transfer.
