Nanotechnology Center of Excellence

The center provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed in the materials science area through state of the art research opportunities.

The vision of the Center for Research in Nanotechnology and Material Science is to create an integrated multidisciplinary environment (Science and Engineering) for research, education, and outreach at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. The Center will pool the available talent and expertise from various disciplines within the different Science and Engineering departments into a coherent materials science center and will focus on developing a predictive level of understanding on the development of polymeric and nanoparticle based material devices.
