Nevada Industry Excellence Has Rebranded as Manufacture Nevada

Nevada Industry Excellence (NVIE) is an Outreach Program of the University of Nevada, Reno’s Research & Innovation division. To better align with its vision and mission, NVIE has rebranded as Manufacture Nevada.

Its mission is to support the University’s strategic plan through growing and sustaining a thriving manufacturing ecosystem in Nevada.
