Center for Engineering Logistics and Distribution (CELDi)
CELDi is a multi-university, multi-disciplinary National Science Foundation sponsored Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC). Research endeavors are driven and sponsored by representatives from a broad range of member organizations, including manufacturing, maintenance, distribution, transportation, information technology, and consulting. Our industrial partners serve as the "thought-leaders" with strong existing and ongoing financial commitment to logistics research. This partnership between academic institutions and industry represents the effective integration of private and public sectors to enhance the United States competitive edge in the global market place. CELDi provides integrated solutions to logistics problems, through research related to modeling, analysis and intelligent-systems technologies.
Academic partners have joined together to merge unique research strengths that allow CELDi to surpass traditional research institutions that offer a compartmentalized approach to logistics research. Each institution brings complementary expertise to the organization.
The academic partners include:
- Lehigh University
- Oklahoma State University
- Texas Tech University
- University of Arkansas
- University of Florida
- University of Louisville
- University of Nebraska - Lincoln
- University of Oklahoma
At all eight campuses, research activities, graduate and undergraduate course offerings, professional development and continuing education opportunities combine to form the foundation and structure for educating the next generation of engineers in logistics and distribution.
