In 2013, the University of Dayton School of Engineering unveiled the Center of Excellence for Thin-Film Research and Surface Engineering (CETRASE).

"We want to find ways to make better, more efficient, cost-effective sensors, electronics, electro-optics, and energy systems and hopefully create new jobs in the region," said Guru Subramanyam, University of Dayton Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

"Many of us have collaborated or have been collaborating on similar projects," Subramanyam said. "It makes sense for us to put our heads together for a Center where we can coordinate activities, interact, and share common equipment and costs. We'll have strength in numbers.
