Opportunities to collaborate with our Faculty, Staff, and Students

There are several methods of engagement that are productive and beneficial for industry members as well as students, faculty, and staff:

  • GIVE a gift!
  • Sponsor a Senior Project. Materials Science and Engineering undergraduates complete a capstone experience in order to receive a Bachelor of Science. Student groups spend two semesters working with industry partners on select projects to come up with viable solutions. Please contact us at if you are interested in sponsoring a senior project.
  • Collaborate on Research Activities. Boise State University’s C-TAP is a business portal that provides fast, innovative solutions to complex technical problems facing local and regional businesses. The program offers “front-door” access to a variety of Boise State resources. Assistance is available across disciplines, with nationally recognized expertise in materials science, mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science, biomolecular science, sensor development, geosciences, environmental research and energy.
  • Attend or Present a Seminar. The Micron School of Materials hosts a weekly seminar on topics of interest in the field. The seminar is open to the public. Please contact us at if you are interested in presenting a seminar.
  • Conduct Analytical Services. Materials characterization services are provided via the Boise State Center for Materials Characterization (BSCMC), the Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory (IML), the Surface Science Lab (SSL), and via individual laboratories of our faculty. Further capabilities are available at the Characterization Imaging Center at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES).
