Research Description By Engineering Research Center

(CEINT) HU Center for the Environmental Implications of Nano Technology

Exploring the relationship between nanomaterialsâ€" from natural, to manufactured, to those produced incidentally by human activitiesâ€" and their potential environmental exposure, biological effects, and ecological consequences.

(CESaC) Center for Energy Systems & Control

Systems engineering using artificial intelligence, reliability studies for small spacecraft, and hybrid electric vehicle control.

(CREST) Crest Nanoscale Analytical Sciences Research and Education Center

The Crest Nanoscale Analytical Sciences Research and Education Center (CREST) makes resources available to upgrade the capabilities of the most research-productive institutions serving minorities. The goals of CREST are to develop outstanding research integrating education and research, produce new knowledge, increase faculty research productivity and create greater student diversity in the STEM disciplines.

(HNF) Howard Nanoscale Science and Engineering Facility (HNF)

This center consists of five large laboratories covering 6500sf of space and the HNF has about 2000sf of continguous office space. The HNF is an established centralized user facility containing over $10M of micro and nano fabrication and characterization equipment, accessible by external and internal academic, government and industrial users. Currently, HNF has integrated facilities in the following categories: Lithography, Nanofabrication, Plasma Etching/Disposition, CVD Deposition, Nanomembrane, Characterization,and Computer Facilities and a class 100 clean room.

(HUTRC) Howard University Transportation Research Center

The Center provides students an opportunity to embrace the challenges of public service and transportation research in an urban environment as well as discovering career experiences and opportunities in the industry. In addition, the Center plays a key role in assisting the District of Columbia in identifying multi-modal transportation needs through active research participation of Howard's faculty and students. Funds are provided by the District of Columbia government.
