Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology students and faculty are
playing a role in helping the Smart Lighting Engineering Research
Center (ERC) hasten the transition of important innovations from
the laboratory bench to the classroom and marketplace.
The center is dedicated to developing new light-emitting diode
(LED) technologies and applications for smarter, better-performing
lighting devices and systems. Launched in 2008 and funded
primarily by the National Science Foundation, the ERC is led by
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) of Troy, N.Y.
