Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure


CICI Logo - Center for Integration of Composites into InfrastructureThe Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure is a National Science Foundation 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, Nanjing University of Technology (China) and the University of Texas at Arlington. The focus areas will synergize different fibers and polymers to create new application areas, thus expanding market potential.


The mission of CICI is to accelerate the adoption of polymer composites and innovated construction material into infrastructure and transportation applications through collaborative research


Industrial Advisory Board Meetings are held twice a year. Please contact Hota GangaRao for more information on meeting dates.
