Nanotechnology Training Program Experience


The Nanotechnology Training Program has allowed me to connect with an interdisciplinary group of students and faculty across the diverse field of nanoscience. The resources provided in funding and the guidance of senior students within the program have significantly improved my experience at the University of Utah, while the structure of the program has broadened my exposure to research and new perspectives. Particularly, guest lectures by distinguished Professors of the field and journal club meeting discussions with NTP fellows over cutting-edge new papers have offered such opportunities.

The Nanotechnology Training Program gave an opportunity to rotate in different labs/projects, before selecting one, which helped me to identify the research area which interests me. Second, The courses required to take were helpful in understanding different techniques and instruments used in manufacturing nanostructures and analysis of the same. I personally use some instruments introduced during the course in my own research. Finally, the journal club gave more insight about how to critic a peer reviewed article. Altogether, NTP has equipped me with tools and techniques needed for my PhD program.
