Research and Technology Park

The new 100,000-square-foot Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) is the first building to be completed in Stony Brook's Research and Technology Park. With more than 70 associated faculty members, 190 Ph.D. students, and 180 master's students engaged in research and development, CEWIT is a next-generation research and educational facility. Though CEWIT projects cover a broad spectrum of wireless and information technologies, four areas will receive particular emphasis: health care systems, transportation and logistics, financial services, and mobile commerce systems. Other research areas include homeland security applications, high-speed computing, cyber-security, radio and digital communications, and 3-D visualization.

The Center's vision is four-fold: to become recognized as a world leader in wireless and IT, to conduct first-class interdisciplinary research in the emerging, critical technologies of the information age, to address the skilled technology worker shortage, and to foster new enterprise development. The Center has obtained more than 12 patents in just the past two years. CEWIT is an unparalleled resource, advancing the science and technology underlying the next epoch of the information revolution.

Construction of the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), the next addition to the Research and Technology Park, began in November 2008 and should be finished in 2010. AERTC is a true partnership of academic institutions, research institutions, energy providers and industrial corporations. Its mission is innovative energy research, education, and technology deployment with a focus on efficiency, conservation, renewable energy, and nanotechnology applications for new and novel sources of energy.
