Research Centers

ASU and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering are lead institutions for two National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) and partner on one other ERC. These centers have paved the way for innovations in geotechnical infrastructure, PV systems, clean water technologies, and the modern electric grid.

The Fulton Schools is also home to over 30 additional research centers spanning areas in cyber-security, cognitive computing, emerging materials, artificial intelligence, robotics, bioelectronics, transportation, environmental health, and energy to name a few.
