the school receives an annual average of $2.2M
of in-kind grants and donations from industry.
Its research has been sponsored by NSF, NASA,
NIH, ARO, ONR, NOAA, and other federal
agencies. Several new faculty members have received the prestigious NSF CAREER
AWARD, DoE CAREER AWARD, and IBM
Faculty Research Awards. SCIS has broad and
dynamic partnerships with industry. Its research groups include the NSF CREST Center
for Emerging Technologies for Advanced Information Processing and High-Confidence
Systems, the High Performance Database Research Center, the Center for Advanced Distributed Systems Engineering, the IBM Center for Autonomic and Grid Computing, and
other research laboratories. The SCIS has excellent computing infrastructure and technology
support. In addition, the SCIS faculty and students have access to the grid computing infrastructure with 1000 nodes under the Latin
American Grid (LA Grid) Consortium
( http://lagrid.fiu.edu), a first ever comprehensive international partnership, co-founded by
IBM and FIU, linking institutions in the US,
Latin America, and Spain for collaborative research, innovation and workforce development.
