Consortium for Embedded Systems
The College of Engineering is home to the Consortium for Embedded Systems (CES). Established through support by the National Science Foundation (NSF), CES is a globally recognized center for embedded computing system technologies. The center is based on collaborative research through Industry/University partnerships.
The fundamental goals of CES are:
- To conduct industry relevant, multi-disciplinary research toward the design of embedded systems
- To develop clear and well-defined mechanisms to transfer research results to industry
- To provide the nation with a cadre of scientists and engineers whose knowledge base and practical training covers a broad range of topics in embedded systems technology
- To study the cross-disciplinary nature of embedded systems research that transcends the traditional Computer Science and Electrical Engineering boundaries
To date, the partnership includes SIU Carbondale, Arizona State University, Caterpillar, DICKEY-john Corporation, Toyota, EMAC, NAVSEA, Intel, Wildlife Materials, Raytheon, Qualcomm and Marvell.
