Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Applied Research & Grants

Interdisciplinary projects, engineering outreach, special undergraduate engineering research projects and other research projects that are not sponsored by a specific research center or department are administered by the Applied Research & Grants Department.

Center for BioMolecular Modeling

Creates accurate 3-D molecular models and 3-D animation for educational and research purposes. Create and research effectiveness of innovative instructional materials that make the molecular world real for students.

Clinical and Translational Science

Clinical and Translational Science (CTSI) is a regional biomedical collaboration of Medical College of Wisconsin, MSOE and others, involving clinical and translational science. Its goal is to diminish the barriers between disciplines and institutions to encourage novel approaches to solving complex medical problems including bioinformation.

Construction Science and Engineering Center

Innovative applied research involving multiple disciplines, testing, validating and demonstrating new materials, processes, techniques, equipment and methods; software evaluation and systems integration, related to the construction sciences and structural and materials engineering.

Engineering Research Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power

Established through a multimillion dollar National Science Foundation award with strong support by the National Fluid Power Association. MSOE is one of seven universities nationwide that is part of this research center for fluid power. MSE will integrate new technologies such as rapid prototyping, sensors, nanotechnology and tribology plus contamination analysis in fluid power to advance understanding of these areas, improving efficiency, and then help take them to the marketplace.

Fluid Power Industrial Consortium

A joint effort with the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA). The consortium provides technical information on the latest fluid power technology advances with immediate implementation.

Fluid Power Institute

Electrohydraulic interface studies; fluid power systems design; applications of fluid power to manufacturing; computerized fluid dynamics (CFD); electromagnetic actuators and sensors, energy efficiency of hydraulic fluids, component evaluation, and filtration and contamination testing.


Midwest Energy Research Consortium (MWERC) is a partnership with local universities, regional industries and fountations whose mission is to develop an internationally recognized energy technology research center to advance energy solutions.

Photonics and Applied Optics Center

Dynamic 3D imaging/analysis; communication; sensing and other optical and photonic applied research projects; LED characterization and life testing.

Rapid Prototyping Center

Joint effort of industry, educational institutions, and MSOE that is dedicated to understanding and advancing rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing methods and proccesses, laser scanning for reverse engineering and first article inspection. The RPC is extending the use of rapid prototyping through research in biomedical modeling and biomolecular technology including nanomagnetics, liquid crystals and digital manufacturing.
