The Nanoelectronics Workforce Development Initiative, under the leadership of SEMATECH, ATDF, and Austin Community College, is leading the way toward developing a nanoelectronics workforce in Central Texas.
Primary goal of the center is to transfer the technology of validated theory and computational tools from the academic-based Center to the practitioners' development environment which is nanotechnology-based industry.
The Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems (COINS) is an interdisciplinary home for research and education/outreach in nanomechanical systems established by the National Science Foundation and hosted on the UC Berkeley campus by the Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute (BNNI).
Nanoscale mineral particles -- nanoparticles -- are naturally formed and removed from the environment by numerous chemical and biological processes. The Center's mission is to uncover the numerous roles played by nanoparticles in geochemical and biogeochemical processes.
The Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute (BNNI) is the umbrella organization for expanding and coordinating Berkeley research and educational activities in nanoscale science and engineering.
The Biologically Inspired Materials Institute (BIMat) was established by NASA under the University Research, Engineering and Technology Institute (URETI) program. The principal goal for BIMat researchers is to develop bio-nanotechnology materials and structures for aerospace vehicles.
The mission of the group is to provide a rewarding and nourishing atmosphere of hands-on cutting edge research for students to develop and grow professionally and technically and use as an opportunity to springboard to a professional career that will benefit them and society.
