Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center

The Center will exploit advanced cutting edge technologies to explore new ways for production from renewable sources, and find efficient methods for distribution and storage of energy with minimal impact on the local ecosystems.

Center for Advanced Technologies

The New York Center for Advanced Technology focuses on sensor systems, central elements in the development of electronics, optoelectronics, and photonics applications.

Center for Biotechnology

The Center in Biotechnology and Biomedical Devices focuses development efforts in several complementary areas of regenerative musculoskeletal and skin bioengineering to generate and commercialize biomedical innovations in the form of diagnostic, therapeutic, and personal care products.

Center for Thermal Spray Research

The Center focuses on fundamentals of thermal spray processing. It carries out state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical research on the synthesis, modeling and properties of wide classes of traditional and novel materials, plus novel functional configurations. It supports two interdisciplinary research groups. One group focuses on processing science and modeling of traditional and novel materials. The other group applies advanced characterization and modeling techniques to evaluate the materials science of thermal spray deposits.

Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology

The Center of Excellence in Wireless Internet & Information Technology will focus on large scale computing and data mining critical to genomics and other data intensive areas, Internet applications, wireless telecommunications, health care applications, and workforce development programs.

Garcia Center for Polymers at Engineered Surfaces

Research conducted at the Center is aimed at achieving molecular-level control of polymer surfaces to improve the performance of conventional materials such as metal, glass, and wood. The development of new thin films is also a primary research concern. With Exxon, the Garcia Center is creating safer automobile tires, molecular sponges to clean up oil spills, and "molecular Velcro" for adhesion between dissimilar materials.
