Research Centers, Institues & Labs

Aero-Propulsion, Mechatronics and Energy

The Aero-Propulsion, Mechatronics and Energy (AME Center at the Florida State University will focus on the development of transformational research programs to foster cross-cutting technologies while integrating with exemplary educational and professional training programs.

Applied Superconductivity Center

The Applied Superconductivity Center (ASC) advances the science and technology of superconductivity and particularly superconductivity applications. We do this by investigating low temperature and high temperature materials through our research grants and through our collaborations with other universities, national laboratories and industry. We continually educate post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate students by our research and public service.

Center for Advanced Power Systems

The Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS , with funds from the Office of Naval Research, is the preeminent center for multidisciplinary research, development and education for advanced electrical power technologies serving transportation and utility systems. The Center has developed an academic-industrial consortium focused on recent advances in power semiconductors, materials, advanced controls and superconductivity applied to power system technologies.

Center for Intelligent Systems, Control, and Robotics

The Center for Intelligent Systems, Control, and Robotics (CISCOR, provides a cooperative approach for conducting interdisciplinary research in the automated systems area. The Center's goal is to provide a means for the state of Florida to achieve national recognition in the area of automated systems with application in such areas as robotics, process optimization, aerospace control, image processing, power systems, and structural control. With major collaboration from defense agencies, the Center focuses on the development and implementation of automated systems technology for transfer to entities capable of sustaining Florida's economic growth for both private enterprise and government sectors.

Energy Research at College of Engineering

The Energy Research at College of Engineering faculty members have engaged in many energy-related research topics ranging from batteries to green building technology. They have worked collaboratively with fellow researchers all over the world in many multidisciplinary research centers by establishing state-of-the-art facilities and organizing educational and outreach activities.

Energy and Sustainability Center

The Energy and Sustainability Center (ESC (formerly SESEC) is set up to address the most challenging energy issues related to the use of alternative energy through the development of innovative solutions for consumers and industry. In particular, the need for energy systems that have much lower emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse materials into the atmosphere is of paramount importance.

Florida Center for Advanced Aero-Propulsion

The Florida Center for Advanced Aero-Propulsion (FCAAP was recently formed to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving and highly competitive aerospace industry. The Center objectives are to help train and sustain the much needed, highly skilled workforce; to design and develop new technologies and products required to help sustain the aerospace industry; and to transition the technology to applications in a timely and efficient manner.

Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM) Systems Center

The Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM Systems Center, headquartered on North Carolina State University's Centennial Campus, is one of the latest Gen-III Engineering Research Centers (ERC) established by the National Science Foundation in 2008. The FREEDM Systems Center will partner with universities, industry, and national laboratories in 28 states and nine countries to develop technology to revolutionize the nation's power grid and speed renewable electric-energy technologies into every home and business.

High-Performance Materials Institute

The High-Performance Materials Institute (HPMI is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in developing cost-effective high-performance composite materials and systems.

Institute for Energy systems, Economics and Sustainability

The Institute for Energy systems, Economics and Sustainability (IESES, a research and policy group established earlier this year at The Florida State University to address sustainability and alternative power issues, has announced $6.5 million in grant awards for research in the areas of fuel cycles, governance and energy delivery systems.
