CICI - CENTER FOR THE INTEGRATION OF COMPOSITES INTO INFRASTRUCTURE

CICI Logo

The Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center which began operations in July 2009. The primary objective of the center is to usher applications of composites in civil and military infrastructures to the next level through collaborative efforts between West Virginia University, North Carolina State University, the University of Miami, Florida, Nanjing University of Technology, Nanjing, China and the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas. The focus areas will synergize different fibers and polymers to create new application areas; thus expanding market potential.
