The primary objectives of NJCEP are to:
- Generate a strong scientific knowledge base for the synthesis and application of engineered particles including nano-particles,
- Develop a state-of-the-art infrastructure for experimental and computational research which can serve as a resource for the solution of many specific industrial problems,
- Generate a significant amount of intellectual property and transferring this into commercially viable processes and products, produce high quality graduates with an understanding of particle technology to be employed by the US and New Jersey companies, and
- Develop a national and international reputation as a center for the engineering of particles.
