The strong educational portfolio of this project focuses on cultivating interest in nanotechnology among young U.S. undergraduate students, especially those from underrepresented groups, and encouraging such students to pursue graduate study and academic research in the physical sciences. The NanoJapan International Research Experience for Undergraduates (IREU) Program is the lead educational initiative of this center. Recognized as a model for international education programs for science
and engineering students, NanoJapan provides U.S. undergraduates
with structured research opportunities in Japanese university
laboratories with Japanese mentors. The TeraNano PIRE Center is supported by an NSF-PIRE Grant (OISE #0968405) and co-funded by the Office of International Science and Engineering, the Division of Electrical, Communications, and Cyber Systems, and the Division of Materials Research.
