The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech was established as an Interdisciplinary Research Institute (IRI) with the goals of providing a central entry point and a central organization to enable interdisciplinary E&N related training, education, and research at Georgia Tech in partnership with outside entities. IEN operates under the office of the Georgia Tech Executive Vice President for Research, Professor Stephen Cross, and is led by Executive Director, Professor Oliver Brand.

IEN is the organizational home for Georgia Tech's professional support team and physical infrastructure, which includes several research buildings and shared user laboratories valued in excess of $400MUS. IEN also enables research for individual Principal Investigators in addition to several fundamental applied research centers, engineered systems laboratories, and strategic research programs. Each of these research effort are led by prominent, research active Georgia Tech faculty who are involved in E&N technologies, many of whom are members of the National Academy of Engineers. Additionally, IEN is proud to be the southeastern regional hub for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) National Nano Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and the national headquarters for NNIN Educational programs.

The IEN is a research enabler, providing the high technology equipment resources, staff expertise, and training necessary for productive nanoscale science and engineering research. The IEN is also the national home of the NNIN Education and Outreach office. For more information, visit our website at
