Adaptive Intelligent Materials & Systems

The AIMS Center aims to develop a unified theoretical foundation for integrated intelligent systems based on the multidisciplinary research areas of its members. Headed by Dr. Aditi Chattopadhyay, AIMS is one of the seven Signature Research themes of the School of Engineering.



The vision of the Adaptive Intelligent Materials & Systems (AIMS) Center is to become a national Center of Excellence in the area of intelligent materials and adaptive systems. This is being accomplished by integrating a variety of interdisciplinary areas spanning mechanical, material, electrical and computational engineering, and developing a solid foundation in the area of integrated intelligent system design. Research in this area will solve large-scale problems that have direct benefit to the economy and society as well as a significant impact on aerospace and mechanical systems and civil infrastructures. Such problems are of interest to both industry and government.
