Center for Tire Research
An NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center

The students involved in the CenTiRe funded projects are a vital part of the Center. They gain valuable experience in carrying out the research work as a part of their graduate school program, interacting with the industry mentors in the monthly project updates, and presenting to the Industry Advisory Board (IAB) members at the bi-annual meetings. Many of our students have moved on to full time employment with our industry members after graduation or participated in internships at member locations during their studies.
