The broad research vision of the cMDIS is to integrate research capabilities and expertise across the broad spectrum of engineering, physical, chemical sciences at Rensselaer. We are always striving to build a cohesive community equipped to tackle research challenges that are at the forefront of the national agenda and that underpin technological advances that address global economic, security, and sustainability challenges.
CBIS is a uniquely focused on collaborative research at the frontiers of life sciences, physical science, informatics, and engineering. One of the most advanced biotechnology research facilities in the U.S., CBIS is committed to innovative interdisciplinary research.
The CCI operates heterogeneous supercomputing systems consisting of massively parallel IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer and Intel Xeon processor-based clusters. The computational power of the current hardware configuration is rated at over 1 PF peak. These systems are supported by over a petabyte of disk storage.
LESA is an interdisciplinary, multi-university center developing “Lighting Systems that Think". The Center engages faculty members, graduate students, research staff, and undergraduates to work on research leading to integrated systems with adaptive and controllable properties that change the way society uses and interacts with light.
The Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES) has established a strong track record in supporting the development of future energy systems through research, industry collaboration, and education.
The Scientific Computation Research Center (SCOREC) is focused on the development of reliable simulation technologies for engineers, scientists, medical professionals, and other practitioners. These advancements enable experts in their fields to employ, appraise, and evaluate the behavior of physical, chemical, and biological systems of interest.
