PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

TANMS offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate students at our partner campuses to be part of a dynamic research center focused on understanding new electromagnetic approaches in the development of nanoscale systems in memory, antennas, and motors. URP research participants work collaboratively in diverse teams of three undergrads with the support of graduate or postdoc mentors. Mentors guide each research team assigned to a TANMS lab in carrying out a project related to the Center's cutting-edge multiferroics nanoscale research. Research participants also engage in a range of skill-building activities to support academic success.
