The Center for Manufacturing Research was created to draw together resources of the State of Tennessee, the university, industries and government funding agencies into a cooperative effort to be on the leading edge of the latest technological advances in manufacturing. The Center draws upon expertise from throughout the College of Engineering and various other colleges, departments and the university, as appropriate, as well as resources outside the university. The Center also employs dedicated faculty and staff that are responsible for enhancing and supporting our strategic research program.
Established in 1985, the Center for Manufacturing Research exceeded the State of Tennessee's benchmarks of performance and was officially recognized by the State as an Accomplished Center of Excellence in 1990.
The Center is the home of three strategic research areas:
- Advanced Manufacturing
- Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion
- Networking and Algorithms for Big Data
