Grainger CEME

Center for Electric Machinery and Electromechanics

The Grainger Center for Electric Machinery and Electromechanics (CEME), established at the University of Illinois in 1999, is dedicated to enhance education, technology, understanding, and research activities on the fundamental topic of electric machinery. Electric machines are the muscle of modern civilization. Billions of motors do everything from spin computer disk drives to pump water for cities. Advances in engineering materials, electronic devices, semiconductor processes, computer simulation, and many other areas can improve the design and operation of motors. The Center is nurturing a new generation of engineers for contributions to rotating electric machines and electromechanics through specialized training and experiences at all levels of higher education.
