Nanotechnology is expected to reshape everything we know, design, or make. As it goes outside the lab and into production, the associated potential for growth in nanotechnology is limitless. To maintain an edge in a global competition, nanotechnology needs a workforce that is exponentially increasing.

This project contributes to the building of this workforce through building an infrastructure for education in nanotechnology that is sustainable and continuous, with coverage from pre-college, to graduate levels. (This website presents the different aspects of this project.)

Our goal is to develop and integrate a sustainable nanotechnology education program into the undergraduate engineering and science curricula.

  1. Development and offering of nanoscale science and engineering educational instruments, particularaly a sequence of two undergraduate courses in nanotechnology.
  2. The offering of a multitude of opportunities for exposure to the field of nanotechnology to interdisciplinary students from different levels.
  3. Providing students with fundamental knowledge, coupled with hands-on skills, and cutting-edge expertise in nanotechnology.
  4. Dissemination of the experience and material developed.
