Institute-Wide Centers Learn more about each of our research centers and the global challenges they seek to address.
This Center partners with universities, national laboratories, and industry in large scientific programs to conduct fundamental research in natural and technological networks, ranging from social and cognitive networks to computer networks.
SCOREC researchers develop reliable simulation technologies for engineers, scientists, medical professionals, and other practitioners to enable them to employ, appraise, and evaluate the behavior of mechanical, chemical, and biological systems of interest.
School Centers The research centers at Rensselaer are at the core of the work we do to tackle the urgent global challenges of today.
Our Center conducts breakthrough research in vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) technologies to advance vertical lift aircraft, such as military helicopters, unmanned drones, air taxis, rotorcraft, and high-speed electric VTOL aircraft.
We promote collaborative research involving the integration of modeling, optimization, and computation to solve complex problems emerging in science and engineering. The key to understanding the multifaceted and multidisciplinary aspects of these problems, and to creating new solution strategies, is the development, analysis, and simulation of mathematical models. Designed to establish new modes of operation for applied mathematicians, scientists, and engineers by cutting across the boundaries of traditional approaches, our Center provides new avenues of research and collaboration.
