The Mission of the CECS Research Office is to facilitate research activities in support of the vision and mission of the College. The College is committed to supporting the goal of the University to achieve international prominence in key research areas to establish UCF as a major metropolitan research university.
The Research Office provides support in the preparation of proposals and assists in identifying research opportunities for the CECS faculty. Dr. Ranganathan Kumar serves as the CECS Associate Dean of Research. The office is staffed by Lillian Ruiz and Pamela Edwards.
This website for the Research Office provides guidelines for the preparation of proposals intended for both external and internal funding agencies, as well as procedures for overhead expenditures and considerations pertaining to patents and copyrights. The UCF Office of Research and Commercialization is also a valuable resource for proposal preparation.
