Bioinformatics and Discovery Systems Lab

The lab is used to carry out common genomic biotechnology methods in collaboration w/ other groups on campus, as well as develop new methods for detecting DNA biomarkers and developing innovative information management systems in support of genomics research. The lab is equipped with a DNA microarray spotter, and DNA microarray scanner, most often used for gene expression studies.

Cyberforensics Lab

The cyberforensics Lab that was officially opened Summer '04 focuses on (1) education and training for students, faculty, and law enforcement, (2) leading edge research in cyberforensics, and (3) operational support for federal, state, and local law enforcement. A memorandum of understanding is in place with the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), the Indiana State Police, the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS/CS Department) and ITaP.

High Performance Computer Graphics Laboratory

The research in the HPCG-Lab is divided into diverse projects, all having in common the use of High Performance Computer Graphics algorithms and tools as the means of providing high performance computation, real-time rendering, and scientific visualization research.

Knoy Bedrich Benes
High-Performance Computing and Cyberinfrastructure Research Lab

a focal point for education, research, and collaboration in the development, deployment, and use of supercomputing, grid computing, and cyberinfrastructure. The HPC-CRL is the first College of Technology Exploration Center, which is designed to support and enhance teaching, research, and collaboration among faculty, students, and industrial partners. The lab consists of three areas: research, collaboration, and education.

The IDEALab is housed in Knoy Hall in room 376. Research conducted there focuses on animation, interactive media, serious games, visualization, simulation and innovative technologies for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. At the core of its activities is a desire to understand how the development and use of computer graphics impacts communication, education and learning.

INtegrated Smart Energy Technology Lab (INSET)

INtegrated Smart Energy Technology lab (INSET)- provides a shared space that supports the understanding and learning of the electrical Smart Grid - a system that interconnects the electricity distribution grid with two-way communications to provide energy monitoring and management for the power industry and consumers. The lab promotes classroom learning, linked to applied technology research of the electrical, mechanical and IT systems, in energy storage (batteries), electric vehicles, electric vehicle charging stations, vehicle-to-grid integration, distributed automation technologies. An all electric go-kart platform selected as an EV surrogate intends to capture student interest while providing an inexpensive way and safe way to gain hands-on learning of electromechanical systems. Originally developed to support the first Purdue evGrandPrix, the lab sustains this activity, while integrating the EV platform as a subsystem of the overall electrical Smart Grid. CIT, EET, and MET work together to train students for industry.

Mobile Application Development Lab

Information systems are constantly evolving to use new technologies.? The types of technologies used in these systems now also include low-priced mobile computing and devices.? These mobile devices include smart phones, tablets, and other specialized hand-held computers.? These devices are being incorporated into modern information systems to collect and present data to workers who are otherwise too mobile to use a traditional PC. The mobile software development curriculum was established in fall 2002.

National Test Facility for Fuels and Propulsion

The National Test Facility for Fuels and Propulsion is funded with a $1.35 million grant from the U.S. Air Force and will be housed in the Niswonger Aviation Technology Building at the Purdue Airport. The facility will test aerospace hardware in engines and aircraft and provide data related to fuel-sustainability and emissions goals and for economic assessments. Work will focus on jet engines but will include some testing related to piston engines. The work will tackle four major bottlenecks to aerospace progress: access to hardware testing; development of control logic and systems permitting flex-fuel operation and realization of improved efficiencies; sustainability of biofuels related to crop productivity, as well as bio and synthetic fuels? ability to meet both near- and long-term aerospace requirements; and regulatory compliance.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Center

The Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Center is housed in Knoy 373. It is the hub for the product lifecycle management (PLM) activities in the College of Technology. It is linked to other College of Technology labs through high-speed network connections and through industry-class PLM suites of tools. Typical research activities in that lab include the areas of product lifecycle management, model-based definition, model-based enterprise, 3D data interoperability and collaboration, product data management methodologies, and workflows for the extended use of CAD data throughout the enterprise.
