Making a big deal out of some small stuff
The Materials Pennsylvania Coalition (MatPAC), which was founded by Lehigh, was recently adopted at Nanotechnology 2002 as the model of education to expedite nanotechnology education across the state of Pennsylvania.
The MatPAC consists of six Pennsylvania based universities: Lehigh University, University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Penn State University, University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
The shared $11 million came from the state's 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 budgets. Lehigh was given $900,000 for its Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers. The university also received $500,000 for nanophotonics.
