The Laboratory has formed a partnership with the College of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara to create the Institute for Multiscale Materials Studies (IMMS). The newly established institute is designed to meet critical training, recruiting and staff retention needs for a wide range of current and future national security missions.
UC, Santa Barbara will initiate a new graduate emphasis area in multiscale materials and mechanics in the chemical engineering, materials, mechanical engineering and computer science departments to grant graduate degrees to students pursuing advanced education both at UC, Santa Barbara and at IMMS facilities in Los Alamos.
