Institute for Cyber Physical Infrastructure & Energy

Infrastructure systems – such as those that underpin living and working spaces, energy production and delivery, transportation, and communications – have a profound impact on the human condition. Rapid technological and scientific advancements related to the built environment are bringing significant improvements to our quality of life. The Institute for Cyber Physical Infrastructure and Energy (I-CPIE) will develop, optimize, and understand the cyber and physical components of infrastructure and energy systems that support all aspects of modern society. The Institute will expand Lehigh’s leadership in areas including smart infrastructure for connected communities, sustainable energy delivery systems, cybersecurity for infrastructure and energy, and infrastructure systems risk and resilience, building on the University’s broad expertise across engineering and computing, natural and social sciences, and business and economics. I-CPIE will also build its research through the expansion of existing industrial and university partnerships and through the utilization of world-class core facilities.
