College of Engineering Center & Institutes

The College of Engineering is home to over 20 research centers which support vibrant research activities in a wide variety of critical technology areas. Most of our research centers were established in collaboration with and with major support from our industry partners. In September 2018, the Innovation Partnership Building (IPB) at the UConn Tech Park was inaugurated and provided a new home for many of these centers. IPB now serves as the gateway for industry collaborations across the University.
