This paper describes the newly formed Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Propulsion (referred to as ICAP) at Michigan Technological University. ICAP is a United States Department of Energy Center of Excellence funded under the GATE program. The underlying goal of Center is to provide multi-disciplinary engineering training for graduate students in the area of internal combustion engines, specifically in direct injection compression ignition engines. This facility will work closely with other Department of Energy Centers of Excellence in an effort to improve the education of future scientists and engineers who will, in turn, help ensure U.S. competitiveness in the automotive industry of the future as well as reduce our growing dependency on imported petroleum.
