Small Times Ranking

 

Small Times, a key publication covering trends in nanotechnology and microtechnology, has ranked the University of Maryland 7th in research and 5th in education nationwide, based on input provided by the Maryland NanoCenter. UMD has placed in the top 10 for research and all three times for education in the three-year history of the Small Times ranking.

The results are reported in the May/June 2007 issue, available in print and online. From a 26-question survey, the top 10 universities were identified in categories of Research, Education, Facilities, and Commercialization.

In describing UMD's role, the survey highlights the university's historical strengths in scanning probe microscopy, the MRSEC and CSR, and the role of combinatorial nanomaterials engineering. It also recognizes the major growth in MEMS on the campus, as well as nanoparticle synthesis and its link to biotech. Small Times' description further recognizes the key role of UMD's partnership in nanomanufacturing with NIST and its new Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST), as well as the leverage UMD's faculty hiring, new facilities, strong undergraduate position in MEMS and nano, and proximity to federal laboratories in the region. Small Times' coverage concludes with synopses of university programs by state.
