ICC Celebrating 10002 Years

Chartered in 2015, the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC) is celebrating 10002 years. Starting with about 25 members in three research centers, in eight years the ICC has grown to seven centers and more than 75 researchers from across campus representing all five Michigan Tech colleges and more than a dozen academic departments. The ICC was established through the generosity of alumnus and major donor Dave House ’65, and the House Family Foundation, with additional major donations in support of ICC research from Kanwal Rekhi ’69 and Paul Williams ’61. Active ICC-affiliated grants and contracts exceed $13.3 million. Read more.


2023 GLRC/ICC Rapid Seedling Research Funding

The Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC) and Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC) are excited to announce the 2023 Rapid Seedling Research Funding Opportunity. Together, the GLRC and ICC are committing $100,000 in rapid seedling research grants for projects conducted Spring semester 2023, Summer semester 2023, and Fall semester 2023. The intent of this opportunity is to provide faculty and research staff funds for idea development and data collection that will quickly feed into larger externally sponsored funding requests.

Collaborative, Cross-Disciplinary Research and Learning

The ICC promotes collaborative, cross-disciplinary research and learning experiences in the areas of biocomputing and digital health, computing education, cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, data sciences, human-centered computing, and scalable architectures and systems, for the benefit of Michigan Tech, the Great Lakes region, and society at large.  Member scientists are collaborating to conduct impactful research, make valuable contributions in the field of computing, and solve problems of critical national importance.

Originally the research arm of the Alliance of Computing, Information, and Automation (ACIA) at Michigan Tech, the ICC provides faculty and students the opportunity to work across organizational boundaries to create an environment that is a reflection of contemporary technological innovation. Member scientists are collaborating to conduct impactful research, make valuable contributions in the field of computing, and solve problems of critical national importance.

The ICC brings distinguished scholars to campus, hosts and sponsors seminars, and co-hosts, with the College of Computing, the annual Computing[MTU] Showcase. Additional member benefits include support for graduate students, student travel support, seed funds for junior faculty, proposal development services, computing facilities, and communications and marketing support, among many other activities.
