Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation Division (CMMI)

 

The Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) Division is one of four divisions in the Directorate for Engineering at the National Science Foundation. Its mission is to fund fundamental research and education in support of the Foundation’s strategic goals directed at advances in the disciplines of civil, mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering, and materials design. In addition, the Division has a focus on the reduction of risks and damage resulting from earthquakes and other natural and technological hazards. The Division encourages cross-disciplinary research partnerships at the intersections of traditional disciplines to promote transformative advances in civil, mechanical and industrial systems and manufacturing technologies. It also encourages discovery enabled by the use of cross-cutting technologies such as adaptive systems, nanotechnology and simulation. The integration of research and education is supported across all programs of the Division.

The CMMI Division is organized into four program clusters, each containing four to six academic research programs:

  • Mechanics and Engineering Materials
  • Systems Engineering and Design
  • Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructures
  • Advanced Manufacturing
