Critical Systems, Inc. (CSI) is committed to supporting the breakthrough technologies that are being developed in Semiconductor and related industries. We provide the gas delivery, gas abatement, and orbital welding, and other products & services that are fundamental to these technologies. The innovations being developed ultimately benefit all of us – in medicine, energy, communications, and in many other areas. We believe these advanced technologies will become even more important in the future. As world population and demand for goods and services increase, the next generation will need to further embrace these technologies in order to effectively manage natural resources and address environmental challenges.
Many of our customers are universities and research organizations where these technologies are first cultivated. That is why Critical Systems is now offering the Breakthrough Technologies Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to 3rd or 4th year engineering/science students pursuing a career in Semiconductor and related specialty areas such as Nanotechnology, MEMS, Solar PV, Thin Film, or other advanced technologies. There are currently 2 scholarships being awarded annually – one Spring Award, and one Fall Award. Each scholarship award is for $1000. The purpose is to help those students to meet the financial requirements as they pursue their degree, over and above any financial aid or other scholarships that they may receive.
