About Us

The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) is a network of researchers, educators, students and industry working together to transform the fluid power industry—how it is researched, applied and studied. Center research is creating hydraulic and pneumatic technology that is compact, efficient, and effective. The CCEFP’s education and outreach program is designed to transfer this knowledge to diverse audiences—students of all ages, users of fluid power and the general public.

Established in June 2006, the CCEFP is now a graduated National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center. It is supported by the National Fluid Power Association’s Education and Technology Foundation, participating universities, Government Grants and individual Industry sponsors.
