Education of PhDs is a crucial element in our research laboratories and this strong interest can be seen in our total number of 67 PhD graduated! This group includes students from EE, APAM, Physics, Chemistry, and Materials Science. Many of the studies have carried out a portion of our research at both industrial and national laboratory labs.
