Stevens Hosts 2010 Metro Area NEMS/MEMS Workshop


Nanomanufacturing Workshop hosted by Stevens Institute of Technology on Monday, July 26th in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Hoboken, NJ, July 24, 2010 --(PR.com)-- On July 26th, Stevens will host over 100 students and researchers from local universities and companies for a one-day workshop on NEMS/MEMS with a focus on Nanomanufacturing. In addition to technical and poster sessions, the workshop will include a keynote address from Dr. George Hazelrigg, the Deputy Director of the Division of Civil, Mechanical & Manufacturing Innovation at the US National Science Foundation.

The workshop will be held to facilitate communication and collaboration among MEMS/NEMS/Nanomanufacturing researchers in the NYC metro area. This workshop is organized by faculty in the area of MEMS/NEMS, with Prof. EH Yang of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stevens as the Organizing Committee Chair, and supported by the Schaefer School of Engineering and Science. In addition to Stevens faculty and students, we will have attendees from Columbia, Princeton, Rutgers, NJIT, Stevens, SUNY-Stony Brook, CCNY, and Polytechnic, among other schools and industrial attendees, which supports our goals for the workshop to raise awareness of the diverse interests of members of our local community, to promote greater participation in dialogue and exchange of ideas and interests among research groups in this area, and to strengthen the MEMS/NEMS education and research activities in this geographic area.

“Dr. Yang brings together a talented team of researchers who are poised to transform nanotechnology though achievements recognized throughout industry,” said Dr. George P. Korfiatis, Interim President at Stevens. Dr. Joe Mitola, Stevens' Vice President for the Research Enterprise added, "Stevens is proud to be a part of then NYC area MEMS/NEMS community where our rich talent pool and record of accomplishments set the stage for global academic leadership and entrepreneurial success."
