Program Description:
This is a Partnership for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) between California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), and Penn State University (PSU). Through collaboration between three CSULA departments (Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry and Mechanical Engineering) in two colleges (Natural and Social Sciences and Engineering and Technology) and the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) for Nanoscale Science at PSU, this PREM is designed to enhance the research and education of materials sciences and engineering at CSULA, a minority-serving institution. Its focus is on mentoring, guiding and training undergraduate and master's students for careers in materials via a comprehensive scientific and educational program that also facilitates the development of a Master's of Science Degree in Materials Science and Engineering at CSULA while establishing a bridge structure for CSULA students to continue on to PhD studies at Penn State or other leading institutions, or to seek employment in the field after graduation.
