Center of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing

Vision Statement 

The vision of the Center of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing is to assure US competitiveness by establishing state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing capabilities in the southeastern US. The center facility will be accessible to an expanding user community across commercial and the academic institutions. Through interaction with a broad spectrum of experienced and novice user communities, the center will allow innovative advanced manufacturing techniques to reach the market quicker and will provide education and outreach programs in advanced manufacturing focused on the southeastern US, with the attention to under-represented and economically weaker communities. To achieve this vision, center builds upon a history of success of the major centers in the Southeast, uniting their resources and expertise into an effective regional and national resource.



The goal of the center is to provide a “one-stop-shop” approach for design, development, prototype manufacturing and testing and characterization using innovative and cost-effective manufacturing technologies. The specific goals are 

  • Goal 1— Develop new manufacturing technologies: with emphasis on smart and digital manufacturing, discovery and development of high-performance lightweight materials using innovative processing, testing, characterization and modeling of future high performance materials.
  • Goal 2— Educate, train, and connect the manufacturing workforce
