Engineering Research Centers (ERC)

NSF established the Engineering Research Centers program in 1984 to develop a new interdisciplinary culture in engineering research and education, in partnership with industry. The centers bring knowledge of industrial practices and needs to universities, and speed the translation of research into useful products and processes. The partnerships have educated and trained thousands of engineering graduates, who have strengthened the workforce and are skilled in the innovation process.
