REU Opportunity at Louisville in MicroNanoTechnology and Additive Manufacturing

Uncategorized No Comments »

The University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering welcomes students this summer to join our research experience for undergraduates 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.

Micro/Nano Fabrication is a very interdisciplinary and diverse field of study.  Its applications range from tiny implantable wireless devices for the human body to autonomous robotic micro-sensors for the environment to next-generation wearables for the Internet of Everything. The number of items which include or use micro/nanotechnology continues to expand at an exponential rate and the NNI predicts that 2 million micro/nanotechnologists will be needed by 2020 in the USA alone, compared to 25,000 in 2000. Because most nanotechnology programs at universities are focused at the graduate level, undergraduate programs such as this exciting hands-on REU program are vitally needed to introduce students to the fascinating field of micro/nano fabrication at an early stage in their academic career so they can leverage it in their graduate studies and throughout their careers.

Due to the pervasive nature of micro/nano-manufacturing, graduates of our hands-on REU program should find numerous graduate school opportunities in the fields of engineering, chemistry, physics, biology and even medicine.


EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS TO ENROLL: College students in the non-traditional fields of  Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Bio-Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Medicine and Biology.
PROGRAM START AND END DATES: From May 29 to August 9, 2018
PROGRAM TYPE: Residential (housing and stipends ($5,000 per student) provided) – Meals not provided
LOCATION: University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky
Provide each student with a personalized research experience related to micro/nanotechnology,

Have all students obtain a core competence in the field of micro/nano-manufacturing through a common cleanroom experience where they design, fabricate and test custom solar cells,

Develop each students’ independence and confidence through participation in research, in-house presentations, weekly scientific meetings and poster presentations,

Provide complementary programs to enhance their learning and skillset (i.e. seminars on writing, engineering design, critical thinking, ethics, etc),

Stimulate the students’ interests in graduate careers in related science and engineering disciplines,

Reach out to undergraduates especially underrepresented groups, and make their 10-week experience fun through hands-on research projects and interesting social activities.

WiCSE Meeting – TODAY at 5:30 p.m. in room 122 in the @One – FOOD and DRINK will be provided

Uncategorized No Comments »

Hi WiCSE members!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break and that these weeks before finals aren’t too stressful! As we discussed at the meeting before break, we will be having a fun VR workshop TODAY. This will be held in the VR room in the @One. We’ve rented this room out from 6-8pm on December 5th, so we can all have fun and play around with all of the cool VR devices that are available.

We’ll be meeting at 5:30pm in room 122 in the @One before we head to the VR room to discuss next semester’s activities and our upcoming cookie exchange. This is a longer meeting than usual, so we will be providing food and drinks.

Meeting time: 5:30pm – 8:00pm 
Location: Room 122 in the @One
Food and drinks will be provided!

I didn’t get many replies regarding the tour of GE, so we will likely put this off until next semester.

See you on Tuesday!
