The Center for Advanced Distributed Systems Engineering (CADSE) is a research division of School of Computer Science at Florida International University. Its mission is to establish a streamlined research, technology exploration and advanced training program in the field of software engineering. The Center's R&D cover both theoretical and practical aspects of distributed systems engineering, i.e. using engineering methods and technologies to tackle development problems of complex high-confidence distributed systems. CADSE's research has been supported by grants and contracts for over $5 million from the National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Air Force Research Laboratory, Army Research Office, NASA and industry.

Current research areas of CADSE include: Distributed Computing, Formal Methods, Multimedia Systems, Network, Object-Oriented Technology, Software Architecture, Software Security, and Software Testing.

CADSE was founded in 1998 through an NSF CREST grant. The founding director was Dr. Yi Deng (1998 - 2000) and the current director is Dr. Xudong He (2000 - present) and the associate director is Dr. Shu-Ching Chen (2002 - present).
