The UMass Amherst iCons program prepares our best undergraduates to be problem solvers, leaders and innovators in science and technology. iCons faculty recruit top tier students across a diverse range of science and engineering disciplines to identify global problems and find cutting edge solutions. The iCons program positions students for high achievement in graduate school and in their careers.
On Thursday, May 5, the UMass Integrated Concentration in STEM (iCons) Program gathered together their largest graduating class at the 9th Annual iCons Senior Exposition.

Amidst the fleeting bodies going in and out of Post and Bean Cafe, you may notice two students sitting at a table. A usual sight, sure.

But, it is what lies behind those two students’ screens that sets them apart.
Several students from UMass Amherst will engage in summer internships with Impact Nano, a new high-tech company in the Pioneer Valley. Impact Nano has partnered with the UMass iCons Program to provide development opportunities for promising undergraduates majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through summer internships and part-time work throughout the year.
