One of the true strengths of our program at the Center for Information and Communication Sciences (CICS) is the opportunities for real-world experience. Our Applied Research Institute (ARI) is a major vehicle for delivering that experience. It has been part of the university since 1987 and has been a significant link to the corporate world for support as well as valuable human connections.
Within ARI are six industry-supported laboratories—Convergence, Networking, Digital Media, Applications, Wireless Innovation, and the Network Integration Center. The latter two spend most of their time focusing on research projects sponsored by industry or government, while the other four are dedicated mainly to supporting the graduate academic program.
Five of our institutes work under the ARI umbrella, or in close association with ARI. Within these institutes, faculty provide leadership and offer additional real-world opportunities to apply knowledge from the classroom.
Companies interested in exploring a working relationship with ARI should contact Robert Yadon at 765-285-1889.
