The Distributed Internetworked Systems and Content (DISC) research lab is housed in the Department of Computer Science within the College of Science and Engineering at Central Michigan University. The lab specializes in providing undergraduate and graduate students across disciplines with cutting-edge research experiences in several domains, enriching their educational experience at Central Michigan University.

Outcomes of student research have resulted in several publications with student co-authors, such as the IEEE Communications Magazine or the IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference. For a list of currently ongoing research topics, please refer to the Research link on this site.

If you are interested in any of the described research areas, or have an idea for a research or implementation project, do not hesitate to contact the principle investigator Patrick Seeling.
