The Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC) is the research arm of the College of Computing at Michigan Tech. We seek to provide faculty and students the opportunity to work across organizational boundaries to create an environment that is a reflection of contemporary technological innovation. This collaboration allows for a convergence in communication, control and computing that mirrors today’s industry and society.
