About the NanoScholar Internship Program
Applications for the NanoScholar Internship Program are no longer being accepted.
Austin Community College (ACC) partnered with SEMATECH, ATDF, and others to provide a NanoScholar Internship Program in the Summer of 2006 through the Fall of 2007 as a cornerstone in the Nanoelectronics Workforce Development Initiative which included development of nanotechnology curriculum materials and statewide outreach to highlight the importance of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology industries to our economy. The NanoScholar Internship Program, offered to college students from around the State of Texas, was specifically tailored to enhance the skills and training of our future workforce in the field of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology. Students enrolled in a scientific or technical degree program at any Texas community college, college, or university were encouraged to apply.
The NanoScholar Internship Program offered participants
* Access to cutting-edge tools and equipment, such as electron microscopes, etchers, photolithography devices, and many other tools required to see and to manipulate matter at the nanoscale.
* Access to knowledgeable people-interns work and are trained alongside highly skilled technicians, engineers, and scientists.
* Real experience in the nano field.
* The opportunity to Work on a variety of meaningful technical projects
Nanotechnology is poised to be the next great technical revolution with promising applications across a broad spectrum of industries and interests, e.g., energy, biomedical and health sciences, semiconductor technology, fabrication, construction trades and materials science, aerospace, security, and the environment.
