...to Graduate School at Any of the Best Universities.
Interested in continuing your education after the BS degree? Our students are exceptionally well prepared for graduate education and are admitted to and excel at the best schools in the country. In all cases these students have full scholarships including a cash stipend for living expenses. Nice!! A few recent examples:
Brian Doyle, Class of 2012 -- Georgia Tech
Brian is a graduate student in Materials Science & Engineering at Georgia Tech. His research is focused on ionic conductivity in mixed conducting ceramics for solid oxide fuel cells and hydrogen permeation membranes. He received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. His thesis advisor is Dr. Meilin Liu.
Kristin Denault, Class of 2010 -- Univ. California at Santa Barbara
Kristin is a graduate student in the Materials Department at the UC-Santa Barbara, where she is studying rare-earth substituted inorganic phosphors for solid-state white lighting applications
Yao-Wen Yeh, Class of 2010 -- Princeton University
Yao-Wen is a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research focuses on ferroelectric nanostructures and their potential applications in energy generation. He synthesizes ferro-electric nanowires via a hydrothermal route, and characterizes them with XRD, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). His advisor is Dr. Sigurd Wagner.
Charles McLaren, Class of 2012 -- Lehigh University
Charlie is a graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering at Lehigh University. He is looking into field-assisted viscous flow of glass. His research is observing the decrease in softening temperature while a DC electric field is applied to glass. His thesis advisor is Dr. Himanshu Jain.
Louis Gambino, Class 2011 -- University of Connecticuit
Lou is a graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He is studying degradation mechanisms in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) interconnects. He uses a combination of thin film deposition techniques and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). His thesis advisor is Dr. Mark Aindow.
Bryan Van Saders, Class of 2012 -- Univ. California San Diego
Bryan is a graduate student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California- San Diego. He is studying nano-scale optics using metallic structures to extract light faster from emitters and to develop plasmonic structures for ultrafast light modulation. His thesis advisor is Dr. Zhaowei Liu.
