he establishment of the Micron Research Center in the Utah State University (USU) College of Engineering is a venture on the part of the Micron Technology Foundation, with a total of $1 million being spent over the next four years on the Center. 

Micron’s establishment of the center is aimed at the furthering of development of next-generation technologies.  Undergraduate students of the college will garner valuable experience, taking courses in inter-chip communications, digital image and signal processing, mixed signal design and parallel processing.

Incorporating an estimated 18 students each year from undergraduate-, master’s- and doctorate-level, the students will also be eligible to apply for research scholarships and funding as part of Micron’s donation.  With this funding, Micron continues its patronage of USU, having donated $100,000 in 2002 to aid in the establishment of the Micron Digital Systems Lab and a further $100,000 in 2004 to create the Micron Imaging Library.
