Goals and Mission


Primary goal of the Multi-Scale Technologies Institute (MuSTI) is to enable research growth by increasing research infrastructure that is available campus-wide, and providing gap and seed funding.


The mission of MuSTI is to create knowledge and technologies leading to functional systems that incorporate nanotechnologies and microtechnologies, and to disseminate knowledge through research, scholarship, and education.


MuSTI was founded in late-2003, first chartered in January 2006, renewed in 2010 and 2015.
