Over the past three years of the NSF funded CREST Center for Renewable Energy and Advanced Materials (CREAM) at Norfolk State University, the CREST CREAM scholars landed a 100% job placement rate at different industries. Some of students were offered job even before graduation. These industries include Intel corporation, Northrup Grumman, NASA, Audi, Boston Scientific, IBM, and national labs such as Sandia Labs. We present our efforts in retaining the students, training them on different instruments, and professionally preparing them for jobs.
