MSE at UMD's Partnerships with External Labs

Embedded mini-reactor design.

MSE faculty have close interactions and collaborations with entities outside the University of Maryland, including other universities, government laboratories, professional societies, and consortia. These are described briefly in the list below. These interactions provide substantial benefit to the research and to the educational experience of the students and postdocs involved. You can also learn more about the department's industry-related interactions.
