Partnerships for International Research and Education

PIRE students

The PIRE education plan has the following four objectives:

  1. Enhance undergraduate and  graduate student research experience via short-term research abroad with priority given to women, underrepresented groups and first-generation students to attend college.
  2. Integrate polymer-derived ceramic research into education via short course offerings and hands-on modules.
  3. Enhance knowledge  generation and quality of graduate programs through collaboration among multiple research groups including reciprocal visits and dual degree graduate programs.
  4. Broaden communication with materials science and ceramics communities through technical interest groups at the American and  European Ceramic Societies.
