Established in 1989, ACBM is now the world's preeminent research consortium on cement and concrete. The Center conducts basic research for a better understanding of the materials science of cement and concrete. It has contributed major advances in the knowledge of these materials and their behavior.

The Center for Cement Composite Materials is an interdisciplinary research program dedicated to exploring the potential for developing new high-performance materials based on cementitious reactions. Research projects include evaluation of structure-property relationships (both nanostructure and microstructure) of cementitious materials, processing of very low porosity cement matrices, of cement-polymer composites, of fiber-reinforced cements, and of new cement chemistries, and modification of properties using special filler materials and novel processing techniques.

The Center of Excellence for Airport Technology is a research center headquartered within CEE at Illinois. CEAT was founded in 1995 as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Center of Excellence focused on airport pavement issues, and has since broadened to include wildlife issues, anti-icing, and lighting. In 2004, the O'Hare Modernization Program (OMP) initiated a research program through CEAT that targets technical issues related to construction of new and extended runways at O'Hare International Airport. Through these partnerships, the Center is able to collaborate on common research goals and complementary outreach programs.

The Critical Zone Observatory for Intensively Managed Landscapes is an NSF funded multi-institution effort to understand the present-day dynamics of landscapes with significant human induced change in the context of their long-term natural coevolution with soil and biota. An observational network of three sites in Illinois (Upper Sangamon River Basin), Iowa (Clear Creek Watershed) and Minnesota (Minnesota River Basin) that capture the geological diversity of the low-relief, glaciated, and tile-drained landscape allow for novel scientific and technological advances in understanding the Critical Zone, the region between the top of the trees and bottom of the groundwater (or bedrock). IMLCZO is part of a national network of ten such facilities located across the United States to capture a range of ecological, physiographic and climatic regimes that aim to support sustainable development by serving as nucleus of advanced research.

The Illinois Center for Transportation (ICT) is an innovative partnership between the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The ICT builds on the experience of renowned experts in transportation and related fields at the U of I, IDOT, and other universities by providing the appropriate tools and support required for objective research. The ICT facilitates the development and timely implementation of cost-effective technologies that improve safety and reliability, reduce congestion and impact on the environment, optimize the utilization of the state transportation infrastructure, and maximize the return from taxpayers’ dollars.

The MAE Center started as one of three national earthquake engineering research centers established by the National Science Foundation and its partner institutions and has since expanded its focus to consider multiple hazards around the world. MAE Center's mission is to develop through research, and to disseminate through education and outreach, new integrated approaches necessary to minimize the consequences of future natural and human-made hazards. Core research is separated into the following five thrust areas: Multi-hazard Analysis, Consequence-based Risk Management Framework, Engineering Engines Social and Economic Sciences, Information Technology.
