Welcome to the website of the Intelligent Systems Center (ISC) at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T). The ISC is a major Missouri S&T research center funded by the state of Missouri to perform basic and applied research in the following five thrust areas:
1) Intelligent Manufacturing Processes, Equipment, and Systems
2) Intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems
3) Advanced Simulation, Sensing, Control and Communications
4) Computational Intelligence and Embedded Systems
5) Cybersecurity and Trustworthiness
The first and second thrust areas address technology needs and issues toward the development of intelligent systems for manufacturing and other cyber-physical applications. The third and fourth thrust areas perform research and development of generic methodologies and tools (both software and hardware) that can be applied to a wide variety of real-world problems. The fifth thrust area concerns the security of Internet and other communication networks and trustworthiness of data in the communications.
The Center currently consists of about 40 members who are faculty research investigators from four academic departments: computer science, engineering management and systems engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical and aerospace engineering. It has two full-time administrative staff to support the center activities. ISC has many research laboratories distributed across campus, and it is affiliated with three national research centers: the Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies, the NSF Engineering Research Center for Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management Systems, and the NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center on Intelligent Maintenance Systems.
Over the years ISC investigators have been working with government agencies and industrial companies to address their technology needs and solve their technical problems. You can view the research profile and projects of each investigator under Research Investigators. If your organization is interested in collaborating with ISC after browsing our website, please contact me or my assistant, Lisa Winstead. You may also contact individual ISC investigators directly if you are interested in their specific research topics.
