Who We Are
The mission of the Advance Materials Engineering Research Institute is to enable the development of future technologies by combining open-access, and state-of-the-art analytical/fabrication tools with innovative research ideas from award-winning faculty and industry across South Florida and throughout the world.
From the Stone Age to Silicon Valley, the first step in any revolutionary technological development is the advancement of materials. Through guided synthesis and processing, the performance of advanced materials can be tailored to meet the needs of the next evolution in energy, sustainability, and health technologies. Without a strong effort in materials development and characterization, these fields can become stagnant and iterative. Within AMERI our goal to provide access to equipment that would be too expensive or too cumbersome for individual researchers to use and maintain. This model frees up researchers to focus on the great engineering challenges of today with the knowledge that the tools and expertise are available to make their vision a reality.
We serve local academic researchers (with users from FIU, University of Miami, Florida Atlantic University) as well as National Laboratories, Small Businesses, and Large Corporations. We can work with you for all your materials science and engineering needs. Dr. Arvind Agarwal Director, Advanced Materials Engineering Research Institute
