Center projects aim to improve industry practices

The Center for Technology Development, headquartered in the College of Technology, connects Purdue researchers with industrial partners to produce technology that addresses real-world, 21st-century problems.

The center's current projects involve optimizing overseas shipping processes and industrial energy management.

The shipping project has resulted in software that allows companies to determine the cheapest and most efficient way to ship irregularly shaped items overseas.

The industrial energy management project involves creating a microgrid that would manage energy from multiple sources and distribute it to industrial partners to increase energy efficiency, reliability, security and quality.
