Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science
Welcome to the Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S), a Science and Technology Center (STC) funded by the U. S. National Science Foundation’s Integrative Partnerships Program. The Center for E3S is a consortium of five world-class academic institutions: University of California at Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of Texas at El Paso, and Florida International University. Researchers at E3S are working in a collaborative and innovative environment to make fundamental and conceptual breakthroughs in the underlying physics, chemistry, and materials science of electronic systems, breakthroughs needed to reduce these systems’ energy consumption by orders of magnitude.
E3S Member Institutions
California Community College System as an Education & Outreach Partner
At its inception, the Center for E3S started working with two California community colleges, Contra Costa College and Los Angeles Trade Technical College to further its mission to develop future scientists, engineers and technicians. Since then, the Center has significantly expanded its outreach to the California Community College System. To date, aided by additional programs funded by the National Science Foundation, the Center for E3S and has hosted student interns and visiting faculty from more than 45 community college campuses across California.
The California Community College System’s participation in the Center is represented by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
The Center for E3S is 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.
