Engineering Research Center for
Compact and Efficient Fluid Power
The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) is a network of researchers, educators, students and industry working together to transform the fluid power industry—how it is researched, applied and taught. Center research is creating hydraulic and pneumatic technology that is compact, efficient, and effective. The CCEFP’s education and outreach program is designed to transfer this knowledge to students of all ages, users of fluid power and the general public.
The CCEFP is a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center, established in June 2006. In addition to its grant from NSF, the Center is supported by its seven participating universities and more than 50 industrial partners.
