SRC expresses its appreciation for members - the lifeblood of this unique research consortium. SRC not only values its members … it defines itself in terms of its ability to meet and exceed member expectations.
The SRC Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) program is initiated through the Education Alliance as an innovative and important step in opening doors at the undergraduate level; URO is made possible by a generous grant from the Intel Foundation, providing undergraduates with valuable research experience and mentoring.
Emerging Research Initiatives are identified as efforts to create synergistic opportunities between the semiconductor industry and adjacent technology sectors. These areas of investigation, involving shorter-term commitments, are integral to SRC's overarching strategy to address innovative applications research—such as energy, bioelectronics, sensors and cyber security—for both SRC members and non-members.
In 2009 the URO comprised programs at 14 universities, supporting meaningful hands-on research and on-campus activities and programs to help students select and apply to graduate school.
Over 1500 students participated in SRC research across GRC, FCRP and NRI, with 176 completing Master’s or Ph.D. degrees.
