The Bourns College of Engineering - Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT) has created a new paradigm for cooperative research among academia, industry, and government. On CE-CERT’s agenda are vehicle emissions research, renewable fuels and energy engineering, transportation systems research, atmospheric processes, and stationary source emission control.
Through CE-CERT’s Research Advancement Program (RAP), sophomores and juniors may participate in the initial stages of new research projects and contribute to the proposals for project sponsorships. Once their projects are funded, students are usually hired as research assistants and continue working on the project through their senior year.
The College’s Center for Research in Intelligent Systems (CRIS) focuses on the computer systems that significantly impact our economic and social systems, such as manufacturing, robotics, remote sensing, image communication, and health care. CRIS is a collaborative, multi-departmental environment.
The College’s Visualization and Intelligent Systems Laboratory (VISLab) is involved in basic and applied research in such areas as image processing, computer vision, computer graphics, CAD/CAM, artificial intelligence, robotics, man/machine interfaces, machine learning and molecular modeling. VISLab also provides graduate and undergraduate research opportunities as well as access to National Science Foundation supercomputing facilities.
The Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering is a collaborative effort of the College of Engineering and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. Through faculty contributions, nanoscale materials, such as organic compounds with electronic properties, are explored.
Their use in developing new and improved technologies is a focus of the Center.
