Railway Education and Research: a multi-disciplinary team covers the railway as a transportation system. We undertake applied railway research, practice knowledge leadership, offer consulting services, and provide railway-specific educational programs.
Center For Business and Social Analytics: CBSA’s goal is to accelerate research that uses digital resources to understand and predict social, economic, business and government processes from the ground up. We will do this by providing and coordinating resources to enhance multi-college collaboration, the sharing of ideas, and innovation across the University. Unlike a traditional bricks and mortar research center, CBSA operates as a virtual entity. To promote collaboration and innovation, CBSA offers a Seed Grant Program, an annual research conference, and an on-going set of informal meetings to connect scholars from across the University.
