IEEE Nanotechnology Summer Schools 2018

For the year of 2018, IEEE-NTC sponsors two Summer schools:

  1. organized by IEEE NC-SC Joint Student Chapter, Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, India (dates to be confirmed).
  2. organized by State Key Laboratory of Electrical Insulaiton and Power Equipment, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China (dates to be confirmed).

Stay tuned for the detailed updated on the summer schools in the IEEE-NTC website:

(1) Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, India

More details about the workshop at Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, India. The aim of this summer school is to provide a platform for interested students/professionals to interact and learn about the latest developments in the field of nanotechnology. The program will consist of lectures, poster sessions, hands on workshops, panel discussions and industrial-affiliate talks. The dedicated topics for summer school are: Nanomaterials, Nanoelectronics, Nano-photonics, NEMS/MEMS, Nano-biotechnology.

The faculty organizers team include Prof. Navakant Bhat, Head of the Chapter, in addition with other faculty members incluing Prof. S.A. Shivshankar, Dr. Akshay Naik and Dr. Sanjeev Kumar Shrivastava.

CeNSE at IISC, India houses a state-of-the art national nanofabrication centre (NNfC) with 14,000 square feet of class 100/1000 clean room. It also houses a comprehensive micro nano characterization facility (MNCF) to conduct virtually any type of electrical, optical, mechanical and material characterization.

The hands-on sessions will be a great addition to the arsenal as they will help cement the understanding and interests of the participants. The participants will also be exposed to Nano-fabrication and characterisation techniques in our own centre. This will also include a daily practical hands-on session. This will enable the summer school participants to attain a much greater understanding of the concepts.

(2) Xi’an Jiaotong University, China
