Founded in 1999, the Center has worked to educate students in the field of Sports Engineering, while engaging with Sports Leagues and Associations and Sporting Goods Manufacturers to advance the scientific understanding and state of the art of sports equipment. As on of very few programs with a focus in sports engineering, the Center hosted the 2012 international conference of the International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA) and also hosted a Concussion Prevention and Diagnosis Workshop in 2015.
