Gain hands-on research experience and build nanotechnology technical education skills through the MNT-CURN undergraduate research program.
In this playlist, you will hear and see nanotechnology and microtechnology professors presenting about their own research and work -- from biosensors to underwater drones to nanomaterials. Each one covers a different specialty or niche area that you might decide to learn about and pursue as an exciting undergraduate research project.
The Micro Nano Technology Collaborative Undergraduate Research Network (MNT-CURN) is a unique undergraduate research program for community college students. During an academic-year and two-week summer capstone research experience, you will have the opportunity to work and learn from faculty mentors, baccalaureate research universities and industry partners from across the nation.
Work either remotely or on your respective campus sites
