Centers, Institutes, and Laboratories
Centers, institutes, or laboratories (CILs) are organized units devoted to research, scholarly, and creative activities. CILs are developed and require approval by cognizance college administrators and the Faculty Senate.
Institute for Materials Research
Finding interdisciplinary answers to advanced materials science problems.
Institute for Shock Physics
A multi-disciplinary research organization with an emphasis on understanding condensed matter response at extreme conditions.
Sports Science Laboratory
Investigating the dynamics of bat and ball collisions to help regulating agencies better understand equipment performance through experimental testing and numeric models.
