Research Centers

Center for Geospatial Intelligence (CGI)
The Center for Geospatial Intelligence is led by Curt Davis, Naka Endowed Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Since it’s inception in 2007, Davis and a large and diverse group of faculty and other researchers have conducted R&D for defense and intelligence agencies and related industries.

Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology (CERT)
The Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology (CERT) is led by Marjorie Skubic, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Center for Nano/Micro Systems (CNMS)
The Center for Nano/Micro Systems (CNMS) is led by Shubhra Gangopadhyay, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Center for Computational Biology and Medicine (CCBM)
The Center for Computational Biology and Medicine (CCBM) is led by Shumaker Endowed Professor Chi-Ren Shyu, who also is director of the MU Informatics Institute (MUII).

Center for Physical Electronics and Power Electronics
The Center forPhysical Electronics and Power Electronics is led by a Logan Distinguished Associate Professor, Dr. Randy D. Curry, in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Center focuses on high-power electronic devices for defense, life sciences, environmental applications and alternative energy sources and storage.

Industrial Assessment Center

For 40 years, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Assessment Centers program has partnered with various higher education institutions to provide small- and medium-sized manufacturers with assessments on how to improve productivity and energy efficiency, and students have benefitted from the ability to learn how to complete such assessments through hands-on learning techniques. The University of Missouri College of Engineering has been a partner for the last 10 years and recently received word that its partnership was accepted for another five-year term.

The University of Missouri Industrial Assessment Center (MZ-IAC) provides free energy, productivity, and waste assessments to small and medium sized industrial facilities through funding provided by the US Department of Energy and is one of 28 such centers located on college campuses nationwide. The DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy allotted $35 million in funding to the centers, with MU earning a nearly $1.5 million share.

Industry-University Cooperative Research Program (IUCRC)

IUCRC enables industrially-relevant, pre-competitive research via multi-member, sustained partnerships among industry, academe and government. National Science Foundation (NSF) supports the development and evolution of IUCRCs, providing a financial and procedural framework for membership and operations in addition to best practices learned over decades of fostering public/private partnerships that provide significant value to the nation, industry and university faculty and students.

Research Initiatives 

Mizzou Engineering is partnering with other campus entities in the pursuit of new spaces to enhance our collaborative research and experiential learning capabilities. The two key facilities for the College are the Translational Precision Medicine Complex — which is currently the UM System’s top infrastructure priority — and the MU Institute for Experiential Education, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
