The BioTechnology Institute (BTI) provides advanced research, training, and university-industry interaction in biological process technology, a major area of biotechnology research. The Institute is the central University of Minnesota vehicle for coordinated research in the biological, chemical, and engineering aspects of biotechnology.
The Characterization Facility is a multi-user, shared instrumentation facility for materials research spanning from nanotechnology to biology and medicine. Our analytical capabilities include microscopy via electron beams, force probes and visible light, including cryogenic methods; elemental and chemical imaging including depth profiling; elemental, chemical
The Charles Babbage Institute is an historical archives and research center of the University of Minnesota. CBI is dedicated to promoting study of the history of information technology and information processing and their impact on society.
The Communications and Data Storage Lab is Prof. J.Moon's research group in the Dept.
The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP), based at the University of Minnesota, is a network of researchers, educators, students and industry working together to transform the fluid power industry—how it is researched, applied and studied. Center research is creating hydraulic and pneumatic technology that is compact, efficient, and effective.
The researchers in the CRC have expertize in the areas of aqueous corrosion, high temperature corrosion, batteries and fuel cells.
The Center specializes in the physical and chemical characterization of exhaust emissions, evaluation of emission controls, evaluation and demonstration of alternative fuels, certification of on- and off-highway engines, and the evaluation of control technology in the field. The Center has unique capabilities to characterize exhaust aerosols.
The Digital Technology Center (DTC) is a hub of innovation and excellence at the University in the digital technologies serving the industrial, educational, and public needs of the state and the nation.
The major objectives of our research are to design, build and demonstrate distributed robotic systems composed of a large collection of medium sized, small, and miniature robots, connected by a wireless communication network, cooperating to accomplish their given mission.
Perpetuating the legacy of the National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED), the NSF Science and Technology Center that operated from 2002-2012. NCED2 will engage the broader research community by focusing activity around an annual research theme that will bring together experimental, theoretical, and field researchers in the field of Earth-Surface Dynamics (ESD).
