The Institute for Manufacturing Systems was formed to provide coordination of research and education in the broad area of manufacturing systems. The institute serves as a focus for manufacturing research. The term “manufacturing” is used in its most broad sense and encompasses all aspects related to the production and distribution of goods, including product and process design and engineering, operations, marketing and sales and product life cycle management.
Dr. Homero Castaneda, interim executive director
The National Corrosion and Materials Reliability Center focuses on corrosion science research and technology. Corrosion is the natural deterioration that occurs with all materials because of a reaction of the material with its environment. This degradation process affects the assets of nearly every industrial sector and government agency and has direct impact on the economy, health, safety, infrastructure, environment and national security.
Dr. Hung-Jue Sue, director
The Polymer Technology Center (PTC) at Texas A&M University encompasses faculty members from chemistry, chemical engineering, civil engineering, engineering technology and industrial distribution, and mechanical engineering whose research topics are in the area of polymers and plastics. Two industrial consortia support operations of the PTC. Members of the consortia sponsor research projects both individually and jointly.
Dr. Mian N. Riaz, director
The Process Engineering R&D Center develops processes for converting agricultural crops and biological materials into functional food, feed and industrial ingredients, and for using these materials in industrial and consumer products. The center also conducts research in recovering valuable components from by-products and in the treatment of processing waters and wastes.
