The Microelectronics Research Center (MiRC) is set up to "enable and facilitate interdisciplinary research in microelectronics, integrated optoelectronics, and microsensors and actuators". Participants come from a variety of academic disciplines within engineering (i.e. electrical, computer, chemical, materials, and mechanical), the sciences (i.e. physics, chemistry and mathematics), and from computer science. The MiRC also collaborates with other centers, including manufacturing, telecommunications, and packaging. The website describes the center's facilities, course offerings, and provides separate websites for the five research centers and projects within MiRC.
