Service and Knowledge
Analytical and scientific services and support for the research community is the primary mission of the University Instrumentation Center. Established in 1973 in response to the challenges of acquiring, operating, and maintaining costly scientific equipment, the center offers direct and easy access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for both research and educational purposes. With a professional staff, the UIC operates and maintains these sophisticated analytical instruments, while educating and providing service, expertise and knowledge to clients. The UIC also provides a unique setting in a readily identifiable location, for other institutions, agencies, and industries to use.
