More engineering centers.

More engineering research centers

The National Science Foundation is creating five new engineering research centers, bringing the total number of these centers to 11 (SN: 6/15/85, p.378). The five centers together will receive as much as $56.3 million from the foundation over the next five years. Each center is expected to receive substantial support from industry as well.

The winners of the competition, which attracted 102 proposals from 75 institutions, are Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh (improved product design methods), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (microelectronics and compound semiconductors), Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. (large-scale structural engineering), Ohio State University in Columbus (manufacturing processes like extrusion and casting) and a joint venture between Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (combustion engineering).
