Current partners and collaborators.

Collaboration is at the heart of the CAPE Lab’s research philosophy. Our scientists and engineers work closely with various SDSMT departments, faculty members and students, and the lab is a hub of multidisciplinary interactions on campus. The lab has established close working relationships with government laboratories, and with several research groups and centers at other universities. It provides responsive research services to industry and develops productive research partnerships with industrial clients, customized to meet each company’s commercial objectives, timelines and confidentiality requirements.
