Achieving Innovation and Excellence through Focused Research and Education Centers

In an age of global scientific advances and intrinsic research opportunities, we at the centers of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology at UCF strive to empower, inspire and challenge. In this forum I will discuss the role of Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center (AMPAC) and NanoScience Technology Center (NSTC) in research, education and service. AMPAC has built a reputation for research and education excellence. NSTC has already surpassed expectations in the field of Nanotechnology and has attained academic and research distinction in its own right. Challenges in running these centers in a complex University environment will be discussed.
