Florida A&M University to Launch New Center on Construction and Infrastructure Technology

Florida A&M University in Tallahassee is planning to establish the Construction and Infrastructure Technology Innovation Center of Excellence on campus. The new center will include a multidisciplinary partnership between several of FAMU’s core academic schools, public partners and the private sector that will be focused on global sustainable infrastructure. Initially the university plans to focus its efforts on energy development and the advancement of technologies that enhance the construction of affordable housing, roads, transportation infrastructure, as well as rapid and sustainable reconstruction following natural disasters.

Larry Robinson, president of Florida A&M University, said that the new center “represents a part of a broader effort at FAMU to further apply the research, extension and outreach components of our land-grant mission toward entrepreneurship and technology commercialization. With the growing impact of our educational programs, enrollment, renowned faculty and researchers, FAMU stands ready to assist the construction sector in addressing critical requirements.”
