To assist its efforts in assessing the need and relevance of micro and nanotechnology related education, the Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME) has recently undertaken a microsystems and nanotechnology mapping project.
As part of this effort, the locations of over 3000 companies and government facilities within the United States that make use of micro and nanotechnologies are presented. These are compiled into a density map, meant to identify emerging and established micro and nanotechnology clusters. Such helps the SCME and its partners determine where perspective students may find employment related to micro and nanotechnologies, and where to focus their effort and resources.
1500 of the companies listed are sorted into seven categories based on the technical field their work lies in. These roughly correspond to the skill sets and technical knowledge an engineer or technician may need to work at such companies. Defined broadly, these are:
Duncan's Micro/Nano Student Blog
Duncan McClure, a graduate student in the NSMS program at UNM, joined the SCME as a project assistant. He is working on the Industry Survey/Mapping project.
Duncan is very active in bringing students and indsustry together. He has started a really good blog and I invite all the educators and students to have a look: "TheNanoStudent"
