The Center for Industry Studies promotes scholarly research that is informed by the practical experience of industry in order to advance engineering, economics, and other academic disciplines and enhance the impact of scholarship on industry and on the community. Our research helps to provide unique educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students and serves as a vehicle for helping students gain access to professional opportunities. Through research and education we seek to enhance the well-being of our community and to further its economic development.
