Welcome to our KAIST and NNFC Visitors

Professors from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the National Nanofabrication Center (NNFC) visited the College of Engineering on February 24-26, the next step in solidifying the new research collaboration between the two institutions. The relationship was officially launched in November, 2015 when President Fry and a delegation of Drexel leaders and faculty travelled to Korea to celebrate the unique international partnership and officially open the FIRST Nano2 Co-op Center.  We look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration.
