REU at University of Louisville (KY MMNIN)

NNCI REU Program at University of Louisville

This program will be held at the University of Louisville, part of the Kentucky Multi-Scale Manufacturing and Nano Integration Node of NNCI.

KY picThe University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering welcomes students this summer to join our REU Micro/Nano Manufacturing program called INTERDISCIPLINARY MICRO/NANO MANUFACTURING PROGRAM ADDRESSING CHALLENGES TODAY (IMPACT).

The goal of IMPACT is to recruit and train next-generation students into the interdisciplinary field of advanced micro/nano-manufacturing through exciting hands-on research projects which demonstrate how this remarkable miniaturization technology can be used to create new devices and systems capable of "impacting" the grand challenges of today in energy, healthcare, advanced manufacturing, security and the environment. Although the field of micro/nanotechnology has been around for several decades, its commercial successes have been primarily limited to the fields of semiconductors and microelectronics. Only recently have researchers begun to expand the application areas of this attractive manufacturing technology from the 2.5D field of semiconductors to the true 3D world of MEMS, microfluidics, sensors and other non-semiconductor disciplines. Graduates of the UofL REU IMPACT program will be well-positioned to make substantial contributions to the fields of science + engineering as they progress through their exciting academic + professional careers.

Application deadline: Feb 15, 2017
