The center has been invaluable to small businesses that otherwise would not have the resources and access to the kind of instrumentation needed to bring solutions, products and processes to the market quickly and effectively. State-of-the-art instrumentation, student and faculty research collaborations and innovative industry partnerships have been the hallmark of the Materials Science Center since it opened in 2004.
The Materials Science Center:
- Provides research experiences for undergraduate students to enhance their education
- Advances the production and dissemination of scholarly research
- Facilitates interactions between faculty researchers and local companies
- Fosters collaborations between faculty in various science disciplines
The instrumentation and expertise of the Materials Science Center (MSC) is available to public and private sector associates. The MSC faculty and staff provide elemental analysis, electron microscopy, materials characterization, cooperative R&D support, and consulting to both commercial partners and academic researchers. The Center also offers educational presentations on Materials Science and Nanotechnology to K-12 schools.
