The Georgia Tech Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) award supports the further development of a multidisciplinary graduate training program of education and research in Nanostructured Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

IGERT - NESAC has faculty and students from:

  • School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
  • School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • School of Industrial and Systems Engineering
  • School of History, Technology and Society
  • School of Materials Science and Engineering
  • School of Mechanical Engineering
  • School of Physics
  • School of Public Policy
  • GTRI

IGERT is the National Science Foundation's flagship interdisciplinary training program, educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers by building on the foundations of their disciplinary knowledge with interdisciplinary training.
Collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries and requires teamwork provides students with the tools to become leaders in the science and engineering of the future. Diversity among the students contributes to their preparation to solve large and complex research problems of significant scientific and societal importance at the national and international level. IGERT students obtain the personal and professional skills to succeed in the careers of the 21st century. Since 1998 the IGERT program has made 215 awards to over 100 lead universities in 41 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. IGERT has provided funding for nearly 5,000 graduate students.
