Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure

It is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center which began operations in July 2009. The primary objective of the center is to usher applications of composites in civil and military infrastructures to the next level through collaborative efforts between West Virginia University, North Carolina State University, the University of Miami and the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas. The focus areas will synergize different fibers and polymers to create new application areas; thus expanding market potential.

Mission Statement

The mission of CICI is to accelerate the adoption of polymer composites and innovated construction material into infrastructure and transportation applications through collaborative research.
