The CREST Interdisciplinary Center of Research Excellence in Design of Intelligent Technologies for Smart Grids (iCREDITS)  was established at New Mexico State University in 2014, with a grant awarded from the National Science Foundation. The Center brings together experts in electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, management, and education. Its goal is to serve as a new center for research and training in smart grids.



Our research is inclusive and we welcome interested partners. Please see our opportunities page for more information.



NSF Grant: BIGDATA: Collaborative Research: Discovering Context-Sensitive Impact in Complex Systems

This project establishes the foundations of big data driven Context-Sensitive Impact Discovery (CSID) in complex systems and fills an important hole in big data driven decision making in many critical application domains, including epidemic preparedness, biological pathway analysis, climate, and resilient water/energy infrastructures.

it enables applications and services with significant economic and health impact. The educational impacts of this project include the mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, and the enhancement of graduate and undergraduate Computer Science curricula at both Arizona State University and NMSU through the incorporation of research challenges and outcomes into existing classes.




iCREDITS and the CS Department are excited to announce our second summer Research Experiences for Undergrads in Big Data Analytics for Cyber-Physical Systems (BIG DatA)!

This BIGDatA REU program provides funded learning and research opportunities to undergraduates to pursue future academic and career goals in Computing, especially in big data analytics for cyber-physical systems.



iCREDITS would like to congratulate Dr. William Yeoh, as the honorable researcher, author, and recipient of a National Science Foundation grant, award #1550662, “CAREER: Decentralized Constraint-Based Optimization for Multi-Agent Planning and Coordination.” For more information, visit this page.
