NSF's ERC Program
The National Science Foundation-sponsored Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) are a group of large, interdisciplinary centers located at universities all across the United States, each in close partnership with industry.  ERCs pursue strategic advances in complex engineered systems and systems-level technologies that have the potential to spawn whole new industries or to radically transform current industries.  These centers help fulfill NSF's strategic goal to increase the diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce by including all members of society, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender, in all aspects of their activities. ...more info
NSF's education programs are rich with opportunity for students interested in engineering. See what interests you and make a contact. It's the next step toward your future!
