Partnering is recognized as a critical way to advance problem-solving. In line with this, T&S is engaged with a diverse mix of organizational and individual collaborations. Our department is a major contributor in three research centers at Stony Brook: the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), the Center for Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT), and the Center for Interdisciplinary Environment Research. Faculty also collaborate with scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), with public entities, including municipalities, the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA), and international organizations. Students working on research projects will have access to the facilities, as appropriate for their project.
