Research Centers of Excellence

 

 

Research Centers of Excellence

The School of Energy Resources (SER) provides funding for the Centers of Excellences (COE) to be established as mechanisms to bring together faculty and graduate students from multiple disciplines to develop important energy research programs. With SER funding, the COE are expected to capture external funds and attain financial independence within a few years. COE evolve with time; new groups may form to work on emerging challenges, while some centers may disband as their programs are completed.
