About the Engine Research Center
The Engine Research Center is devoted to fundamental research on spark ignition and diesel engines and has been a leader in Low Temperature Combustion research. The ERC includes seven (7) active faculty members and typically ~60 graduate students in addition to several full-time staff members. The Engine Research Center (ERC) is a world-leading research and educational institution dedicated to investigating the fundamental thermo-physical processes that control combustion performance and the pollutant emissions formed during combustion in internal combustion engines. The annual research expenditures of the ERC have averaged approximately $3 million for the past 5 years.
