Research and education are integrated to provide students with a cutting-edge research experience and training in materials discovery and design, with opportunities to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills, build professional networks and collaborations, and cultivate intellectual property generation and commercialization competences.
The Fellowship provides an annual stipend of $34,000 over a 2-year period. Students receive support through other research grants for the remaining of their studies, for up to a total of 5 years. A full tuition waiver and a comprehensive health insurance is also provided over a 5-year period.
Advanced Materials Manufacturing and Metrology (AM3) Training Program
Students receive practical training in materials science device fabrication and characterization at the CUNY ASRC. The training contains an initial intensive training boot camp at the ASRC NanoFabrication Facility (NanoFab), followed by tracks in areas of specialization according to the needs and objectives of the individual student.
The AM3 boot camp is a two-week immersive experience that includes presentations on cleanroom design and operation, introduction to lithography, etch, deposition and metrology, high volume semiconductor manufacturing, entrepreneurship in nanotechnology, etc.
Following the boot camp, the AM3 participants have the opportunity to enter into the competitive “NanoFab Fellowship” program to learn the fundamentals of experimental design and process control, as well as becoming proficient in a NanoFab tool set. Among possible tracks to follow are: depositions, lithography, etching, characterization and metrology, statistical process control, manufacturing level approaches and techniques.
Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)- style program in collaboration with our External Outreach Partners provides hands on experience in state-of-the-art facilities, with faculty members associated with the Center as mentors.
Additionally, the program includes a series of extracurricular activities aimed at enhancing the students’ experience beyond the core laboratory experience. Students present their results at the end of the summer in a College-wide Poster Presentation. We share some of our REU activities with the Columbia University-CCNY PAS3MRSEC REU and the CUNY-REU programs.
The students receive a $4,000 stipend during the summer and are eligible for on campus housing if required.
