ATKINS explained that the in-

University's.
"They have more capacity for
developmental work, as basic resear-

University. They have more
technicians on staff, more money for
projects, and they are driven by
nearer term industrial needs."
The Institute offers 12 graduate in-
ternships each year and offers faculty

with industry's needs.
