SMTA Invites Industry to Show Support for Students in Electronics


Reading time ( words)

Many people would agree that the students of today will be the engineers of tomorrow, and the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) is committed to nurturing that connection between academia and industry.

There are now two funds established to acknowledge and reward the research and leadership efforts of our student members. The Stromberg Scholarship recognizes undergraduate student leadership in the association. The Hutchins Grant is awarded for technical research, typically at the graduate level. Both funds are currently accepting financial donations as well as applications from students.
