The biggest long-term impact of our NSF engineering research center is our students. They are critical not only to the current state of our center, but also our future.

CMaT has more than 50 graduate students working on CMaT research in their labs (see projects listed by research thrust on the right), going on cross-CMaT (national and international) sabbaticals, attending the annual CMaT retreat, presenting at poster sessions, etc.

Three of our graduate students are going on international sabbaticals this year! Our first CMaT international research exchange student arrived in Japan this summer in June of 2019. Brian Liu is partnering with Osaka University and working under the guidance of Dr. Masahiro Kino-oka this summer.
