National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers (ERCs)

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