Research Centers & Labs
The applied computational fluid dynamics (CFD) lab was established to use CFD as an analysis tool to understand the transport phenomena in industrial processes and as a design tool to optimize engineering components and system design.
The Center for Sustainable Energy and Environment serves as an interdisciplinary research facility conducting extensive research on energy and environment related issues. The mission of the center is to contribute to the body of knowledge in related areas while increasing awareness on greening activities.
The Cloud Computing Cluster (CCC) develops and implements open-source technologies to support reliable scalable distributed computing in non-relational data environments for science and business.
A Haas CNC mini milling machine in the Mechanical Engineering Lab at School of Engineering is currently being used to support the academic and engineering education in the School of Engineering.
The Collaborative Biomedical Research Center (CBRC) serves the University’s growing research enterprise by implementing a research facility that fosters a shared culture of research collaboration.
The Health Science Collaborative Research Lab, located on the second floor of Charles Dana Hall, provides a shared research space for Health Sciences faculty.
MIG's research explores the technology and application of multimedia and information including video surveillance system, graph-based video database management system, and medical videos.
The PLC, Controls & IC Laboratory at University of Bridgeport's Electrical Engineering Department teaches students the theory of PLCs.
This lab is motivated from the strong need to prepare the next generation of inter-disciplinary engineers with a comprehensive background in sustainable energy. The experiments in this lab are designed to stimulate students’ interest in development and research.
The Anthony and Louise Soares Institute for Neuroscience is located in the School of Education.
Signal Processing Research Group (SPRG) Laboratory works in speech processing, biomedical signal, and image processing. Machine learning (ML) algorithms and their applications in real-world problems are extensively studied. Recently, the group has emphasized research in computer-aided breast cancer diagnosis systems using mammography and histopathology images.
The STEM on Wheels bus is a mobile laboratory, which offers hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) experiences for area K-12 classrooms.
United Nations Research Forum
The UN Research Forum encourages research and course development in the area of UN Studies. Faculty, graduate students and participate each semester in briefings at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The Forum also provides regular updates of UN activities through its extensive UN News website.
Forum for Global Development and Peace
The forum is composed of scholars at University of Bridgeport who lecture, conduct research, and write on topics related to development, conflict resolution, and human security. Participants in the Forum contribute to the Journal of Global Development and Peace as well as to other scholarly publications.
