Center for Applied Thermodynamic Studies (CATS) is an internationally recognized research center where basic analytical and experimental research is done to quantify the thermophysical properties of fluids and fluid mixtures. The mission of the Center is to provide the scientific and engineering communities with the highest quality information concerning the thermophysical properties of fluids and fluid mixtures
Center for Ecohydraulics Research (CER) located within the Idaho Water Center in downtown Boise. The CER is a graduate education and research program dedicated to studying links between physical processes and aquatic ecosystems. Our students are from Idaho, the US and around the world. Some work part-time for agencies or consultants and a few located outside Idaho obtain coursework through Engineering Outreach or web delivery, undertaking remote research or working on projects in their geographic region.
