Unique to MESA+ is its multidisciplinary composition. A total of 19 research groups of the faculties of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) and Science and Technology (S&T) participate in MESA+.

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

NISTFrom automated teller machines and atomic clocks to mammograms and semiconductors, innumerable products and services rely in some way on technology, measurement, and standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Founded in 1901, NIST is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Commerce Department's Technology Administration. NIST's mission is to develop and promote measurement, standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate trade, and improve the quality of life. NIST carries out its mission in four cooperative programs:

NIST has an operating budget of about $771 million and operates in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and Boulder, Colorado. NIST employs about 3,000 scientists, engineers, technicians, and support and administrative personnel. About 1,800 guest researchers complement the staff. In addition, NIST partners with 2,000 manufacturing specialists and staff at affiliated centers around the country.
