Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science
The Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S) was a Science and Technology Center (STC) funded by the U. S. National Science Foundation’s Integrative Partnerships Program with the goal to reduce energy consumption of electronic systems by making fundamental and conceptual breakthroughs in the underlying physics, chemistry, and materials science.
E3S Member Institutions
California Community College System as an Education & Outreach Partner
From its inception, the Center for E3S has worked with California community colleges to further its mission of developing future scientists, engineers and technicians. Aided by additional programs funded by the National Science Foundation, the Center for E3S was able to host student interns and visiting faculty from more than half of the 109 community college campuses across California.
The California Community College System’s participation in the Center was represented by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
The Center for E3S was fortunate to have leading companies of the semiconductor industry as its industrial research partners. Since the beginning of the Center, these industrial research partners have been advising and supporting E3S in a multitude of ways, including mutual visits, research review events, seminars, student and postdoc visits, and joint publications.
