The Advanced Composites Institute, or ACI, focuses on pioneering transformational composite technologies in a variety of critical sectors, including aerospace, civil, military, energy, automotive and other emerging markets. It was created at MSU with the donation of a revolutionary stitched composite process and equipment originally developed at NASA by pioneering scientist Marvin B. Dow.
Research & Partners
The mission of ACI is to initiate, lead and facilitate high-utility, strategic programs that drive innovation and nucleate applied research and economic development in the composites industry via collaborative partnerships with universities, U.S. government agencies and industry associates.
The immediate goal of ACI is to enable funded programs with MSU faculty and students from concept to customer collaboration, to technology transfer and technical service for scale-up to production.
