HOUSTON – Texas Southern University is hosting the NASA “HBCU/MSI Technology Infusion Road Tour” from Sept. 13-15, which will give the university and its students access to internship opportunities and provide faculty and staff with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and research-focused partnership opportunities.
According to a news release from the university, the tour will also provide TSU with a platform to showcase its research capabilities.
Each day, attendees will be invited to networking sessions with participating federal government representatives, NASA Center leads, and prime contractors to introduce and build relationships to enhance partnerships and maximize opportunities.
