The threefold mission of the Center for Innovation in Mechanics for Design and Manufacturing (CiMDM) is: research; education and training and global collaborations; and industry and governmental lab outreach (provide consultancy and expert technical services to industry and also collaborative in research with government labs). The center aims to solve the need for mechanics support for early stage design and subsequent manufacturing. This is complementary to the advances in manufacturing techniques, sensor-based manufacturing process prognostics, supply chain innovations, and quality control measures. Developments and advances in mechanics are essential to gaining insight into the physics of these processes.

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.
Director: Dr. Mian N. Riaz
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.
