University at Buffalo launches Communities of Excellence initiative

SMART is led by Omar Khan, Architecture; Kemper Lewis, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Michael Silver, Architecture; and Kenneth English, Center for Engineering Design and Applied Simulation. SMART will seek to establish UB as a global leader in advanced manufacturing and design by developing the next generation of manufacturing technologies, processes, and education that enable sustainable, cost-effective production of high quality, customizable products. SMART will leverage university and regional strength in manufacturing, partner with regional companies, and capitalize on state and private investments to develop intelligent, interconnected systems that support design and production processes and to educate future manufacturing leaders. Through SMART, UB will participate in the national effort to bolster US manufacturing, making SMART one of the nation’s leading manufacturing institutes and strengthening UB’s ability to shape national policy and research agendas in that area.
