National Science Foundation Will Support Innovative New Clarkson Program With $2 Million
The National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced that it will put $2 million toward the establishment of a new doctoral program at Clarkson University with the theme of Environmental Manufacturing Management. Faculty from all four of Clarkson's schools (Engineering, Business, Liberal Arts, and Science) will participate in the program which is aimed at providing graduate students with strong technical skills, coupled with the environmental, managerial, ethical, economic, policy and communications skills needed to be successful in the management of wastes associated with industrial manufacturing processes.
The NSF has indicated that the training grants are "intended to produce a diverse group of engineers and scientists who are well-prepared for a broad spectrum of emerging career opportunities in industry, government and academe."
Graduate students supported under these fellowships will be exposed to multidisciplinary research themes in emerging areas of science and engineering, and areas that cross traditional boundaries, uniting faculty from several departments and/or institutions.
