Undergraduate Research Co-Ops Travel to Korea

Undergraduate Research Co-Ops Travel to Korea

The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials is proud to send the first cohort of 4 undergraduate researchers to South Korea for a 5-month research co-op. The students will be working with colleagues at NNFC-KAIST and KIST on individual research projects led by Drexel faculty.  This collaboration is part of the NNFC-Drexel Nano2Co-op Center, funded by the NRF and supported by Drexel’s Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC), Office of International Programs, College of Engineering, and the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute.
