Established in August 2009 with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), SiViRT Center consists of faculty and students from both the colleges of engineering and sciences. The Center is organized in three research teams in the areas of Imaging and Visualization, Uncertainty Quantification and Model Validation, and Simulation and Real-Time Prediction. The applications range from structural reliability, UAV, particle flow simulation, nanotechnology, and biomechanics, to computational neuroscience and cancer treatment simulation.
NSF CREST CENTER
The Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program makes resources available to enhance the research capabilities of minority-serving institutions through the establishment of centers that effectively integrate education and research. CREST promotes the development of new knowledge, enhancements of the research productivity of individual faculty, and an expanded presence of students historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
