MTL Ph.D. students visit Maxim Integrated. The Maxim host was Dr. Brian Brandt (back right)

On February 13, 2014, a group of eleven Ph.D. students from MTL visited the headquarters of Maxim Integrated in San Jose, CA after attending the International Solid-State Circuits Conference. The visit included presentations by, and discussions with, Maxim executives including the CEO and CTO. Technical presentations by senior Maxim engineers and demos of new products helped the students learn more about Maxim. In the afternoon four MTL students gave 30-minute presentations on their research and six additional students presented "two minute" research overviews. The final event of the day was a mixer with Maxim engineers and technical managers. The visit was very successful in building stronger ties between MTL and Maxim.
