Meetings Foster Collaboration in Transport Phenomena of GaN
Prof. S.M. Shivaprasad from India visited Northwestern and gave talk at Materials Science & Engineering Department
Yi-Kai defended his PhD dissertation:"Synthesis, Characterization and Properties of Functional Nanomaterials: Metal Oxides and Layered Materials"
Professor Dravid talked about 'Strain Mediated Phenomena in Nanostructured Oxides and Chalcogenides'
We believe in strong and seamless integration of all: Teaching, Research and Societal Outreach. All of these are, should be, intimately connected and essential. In both, teaching and research, our emphasis is on higher levels of learning: Creativity, Synthesis and Analysis, incorporating:
- Multidisciplinary approach to materials education,
- "Big picture" approach to research undertaking,
- Synergy, collaboration and cooperation within groups, across the seas and beyond the traditional boarders,
- Attaining excellence in education via integrating research and teaching
