Tomorrow’s leaders in the nanomanufacturing workforce need trans-disciplinary training in convergent science and engineering fields to translate nano-scale materials, devices and processes to commercial manufacture. They must also be skilled in innovation, design, metrology, teamwork, communication, ethics and leadership. To empower REU participants with skills and capabilities to become innovative leaders in tomorrow's nanomanufacturing sector, the MSEN TNEWS REU at the University of Arkansas offers:

  • Mentorship by faculty from science and engineering disciplines as well as industry leaders in nanomanufacturing
  • Discovery experiences involving research in quantum to nanoscale materials, devices and systems
  • Professional skills training in leadership, teamwork, communication, ethics, innovation and design
  • Hands-on experience with state-of-the-art electron, optical and scanning microscopy and spectroscopy systems at the nanoscale

Join us and embark on an exciting launch to your future in tomorrow's nanomanufacturing enterprise!
