CNSI Education

Leveraging institutional resources and cross-campus networks, the CNSI provides ample opportunity for skills training and career development.


CNSI Nanovation Day

We are proud to support the international collaborative efforts of the Cross-Disciplinary Scholars in Science and Technology (CSST) program that invites highly accomplished students to study and engage in scientific research at UCLA. The students are supported by institutional agreements with universities abroad and scholarships from their home institutions.


CNSI Nanovation Day

Our educational efforts are driven by the help and support of dedicated graduate students and post-doctoral scholars who specialize in nanoscience-related research. They bring expertise and enthusiasm to the creation, development, and implementation of our workshop programming for teachers and students as well as the general public through our Nanoscience at the Mall program in our local communities.

Professional Development

CNSI Nanovation Day

Our professional development initiatives are implemented in collaboration with UCLA’s Professional Development for Graduate Students and Post-Doctoral Scholars. We co-host a wide range of workshops and invite distinguished speakers who provide insight and expertise on professional and career development topics.

Academic Courses & Certified Training

We are continually developing innovative educational opportunities and professional training for our faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars. In partnership with UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, we have developed a course, Entrepreneurship for Science, Medicine and Technology (ESMT), aimed at cultivating the entrepreneurial ecosystem of UCLA.
