Interdisciplinary Research

Princeton brings together world-class facilities and researchers to solve the interdisciplinary challenges facing society today. These are organized as formal centers as well as research and academic programs with highly-directed yet broad missions that will extend the range and impact of electrical engineering. These interdisciplinary structures span expansive technical and non-technical agendas. We invite you to explore the vibrant roles they are playing in advancing the objectives of Princeton Electrical Engineering.

Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment - The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment supports a vibrant and expanding program of research and teaching in the areas of sustainable energy development, energy conservation, and environmental protection and remediation.
Center for Information Technology Policy - The Center for Information Technology Policy uses Princeton’s unique strengths to promote an informed public discussion of digital technologies. The Center is a nexus of expertise in technology and engineering, public policy, and the social sciences on campus.

Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education - The Keller Center educates leaders for a technology-driven society. Through interdisciplinary engineering courses, experiential learning and entrepreneurship opportunities, the Center equips students with an understanding of technology, the societal applications of engineering, and the requisite leadership skills to make an impact.

Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment - MIRTHE is a NSF funded Engineering Research Center at Princeton University. MIRTHE's goal is to develop Mid-Infrared optical trace gas sensing systems based on new technologies with the ability to detect minute amounts of chemicals found in the environment or atmosphere, emitted from spills, combustion, or natural sources, or exhaled.

Princeton Center for Complex Materials - PCCM is an NSF-funded Materials Science and Research Center (MRSEC) dedicated to pushing the frontiers of complexity in materials science. Industrial collaboration is also an important aspect of PCCM research.

Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials - PRISM addresses long term global and societal challenges through deeper understanding and invention in the world of materials and their applications.

Princeton Neuroscience Institute – The goal of PNI is to understand the behavior of the brain at all levels of function, from systems to cells. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of this endeavor PNI brings together many faculty and students from across the Princeton campus.

Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics - PACM is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental program focusing on mathematics and its applications.
