The mission of CA-STEM is to improve the methodologies used by evaluators in the assessment of educational interventions in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. CA-STEM's role is to bring together experts in quantitative research, qualitative research, and STEM content with the purpose of improving the evaluation of educational research projects. CA-STEM will also provide a training ground for undergraduate students, graduate students and researchers who are interested in assessment and evaluation.
CARDI is a Research Center that has focused on automation, robotics, and intelligent systems. The center includes faculty from the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences, Departments of Applied Mathematics & Statistics, Geophysics, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and Civil & Environmental Engineering. Research is sponsored by industry, federal agencies, state agencies, and joint government-industry initiatives. The Center's mission is to study and apply advanced engineering and computer science research in soft computing (neural nets and fuzzy sets), robotics, sensor/actuator development, expert systems and intelligence. Applications are to problems in environment, energy, natural resources, materials, transportation, information, computer communications, networking, medicine, and data mining. Problems that require a multi-disciplinary systems approach to integrate technologies from the different disciplines are typically researched.
The Center for Research and Education in Wind (CREW) is a research center of the Colorado
Renewable Energy Collaboratory. The Collaboratory is a unique research partnership that
allows companies and other organizations to become members of its research centers and
access the research capabilities of four world-class research institutions: National Renewable
Energy Laboratory, Colorado State University, University of Colorado at Boulder, and Colorado
School of Mines.
CREW is dedicated to advance fundamental understanding and to develop new technologies in areas that can improve the reliability and efficiency of wind power generation under a wide range of conditions. The ultimate goal of CREW is to enable widespread deployment of wind energy infrastructure and to contribute to a reduction in the cost of wind energy through scientific, technological, regulatory, and political advances in the current state of the art in wind energy systems. CREW also emphasizes on education and training opportunities as key to advancing wind energy.
The Center for Wave Phenomena (CWP) supports an interdisciplinary (geophysics, mathematics) research and educational program in seismic exploration. The main focus of the program is in seismic modeling, migration, and inversion methods and accurate and efficient computational methods for seismic data processing, primarily for application to regions of structural complexity.
