Research Facilities

EECS students and faculty work on multi-million dollar interdisciplinary research project at state-of-the-art research facilities including, the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), was a NSF Science and Technology Center, and the Institute for Information Sciences (I2S).

For more information about associated research facilities and programs select one of the research clusters below:


Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2005, with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.


The mission of the Institute for Information Sciences (I2S) is to sustain and grow national leadership in the creation, dissemination, and commercialization of new technologies in computer systems, communication systems, and radar systems. I2S performs basic and applied research to create and disseminate fundamental knowledge and new technologies; educate and train students for technology leadership; and provide state, national, and international leadership for next generation information infrastructure. I2S is currently composed of five standing research centers: 1) Radar Systems & Remote Sensing; 2) High Assurance & Secure Systems; 3) Communications, Materials, and Photonics; 4) Mathematical Methods & Interdisciplinary Computing; and the Center for Cyber-Social Dynamics. I2S also includes a contract center, the Science of Security Lablet. I2S facilities include: the Kansas Applied Research Laboratory, RF Measurement Laboratory, Optical and Photonics Systems Laboratories, a High-Performance Computing Cluster & File Storage, the Cyber-physical Laboratory, Cybersecurity Laboratory and the Blockchain Laboratory.
