Center for Embedded Systems
The Center for Embedded Systems, an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Center, is a nationally recognized center for research and development in the emerging area of embedded computing system technologies with many participating industries in the areas of microelectronics, defense and aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing.The consortium was established in 2009 and is funded by the National Science Foundation as a partnership between Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Arizona State University, and industrial members as well as Federal Agencies that fund research projects through the center.
Intel, Qualcomm, Raytheon, Toyota, Marvell, Caterpillar, UTC Aerospace Systems, General Dynamics, Rockwell Collins, Johnson Controls, Alphacore and LEMKO have joined the center and more companies are expected to join.
This is a unique opportunity for students to be involved in projects of current interest to leading industry in this demanding field. Several SIUC faculty, graduate and undergraduate students are already participating in projects through the center. Some undergraduate students are funded directly from the National Science Foundation though the consortium. The center director at Southern Illinois University is Professor Spyros Tragoudas.
