Thanks to the generous support of a donor, the School of Natural Sciences is happy to announce the availability of three student co-working seats at the Capital Factory in downtown Austin. The tech hub and start-up incubator has been an Austin landmark for years, and offers wireless internet, access to entrepreneurs and business mentors, and numerous seminars and presentations. We are delighted to offer three students the chance to spend time at Capital Factory to pursue a project of their own design.
Eligible students will be majoring in the sciences, mathematics, computer science, or environmental science. It is expected that students regularly spend time at the Capital Factory as part of their project, with more significant effort in the summer when classes on the main campus are not in session. Project proposals may be for just the summer or may extend through the Fall semester as well.
A faculty member from NSCI will be present regularly to provide mentorship and guidance to students working on projects there. Checking in with that faculty member is required for students working at Capital Factory as well.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply, please fill out this survey.
Applications will be accepted through Friday, 11 May at 5 pm.
It is anticipated that projects at Capital Factory may begin as early as 15 May.

Program At A Glance -SS.Sp18-2moel0r
For the past two years, St. Edward’s University has been in a partnership with the UT-Austin NASCENT Nanotechnology Center to offer a Certificate in Hands-on Nanotechnologies that consists of 3 online courses with portable nanotechnology labs.
Course 1: Nanofabrication and Nanomaterials (summer)
Course 2: Nanodevices (following summer)
Course 3: Nanotech Innovation (fall semester after Course 2)
Students register through the UT system and credit for each course transfers back to SEU as PHYS 3345 Special Topics in Physics and can count toward a minor in physics. Crisel Suarez, who graduated this past May as a math major, recently completed the program and is now enrolled in the Fisk-Vanderbilt Bridge Physics PhD Program to study photonics. If you register for Course 1 for this summer or have any questions, please contact Paul Walter (email@example.com).
The Department of Biological Sciences is pleased to host Dr. Kirk Jensen, Assistant Professor from the University of California, Merced.
