e-Design Center

The Center for e-Design is an NSF supported Industry/University Cooperative Research Center involving a number of high technology companies such as Raytheon, PTC, Vistagy, and ANSYS, as well as several universities, including Virginia Tech, University of Central Florida, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Buffalo, Brigham Young University, and Wayne State University. The mission of the Center is to serve as a nucleus of excellence for the creation and dissemination of a systematic body of knowledge in intelligent e-design and product realization. Research at UMass-Amherst is focused on development of new design paradigms and processes, with particular emphasis on engineering knowledge modeling and development of ontologies to support e-Design.
