FMA (Fellow-Mentor-Advisor)

SystemX is continuing Stanford’s successful tradition, pioneered by John Linvill, former director of CIS (SystemX’s predecessor) of “FMA” (Fellow-Mentor-Advisor) relationships. A member company supports research by a Stanford Ph.D. student Fellow, who interacts closely with an expert Mentor from the company to conduct advanced research into an area of mutual interest under the guidance of a faculty Advisor. More than 30 years later, FMAs have become the model for university-corporate partnerships. SystemX can set up a new FMA research relationship with any professor at Stanford whose research falls within our general areas of interest.

Last year's FMA students participated in quick-fire presentations and presented posters at the 2019 Fall Conference. Login is required to view poster PDFs and recordings.
