Additional Program Information


Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field, working at the crossroads of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and information technology.  Not only does it provide the potential for miniaturization, but materials at the nano level exhibit entirely new material properties, which offer the possibility of new devices, applications, and technologies.  The program provides graduates the knowledge, skills and abilities to operate a variety of nanofabrication equipment, understand  the behavior of matter at the atomic level in chemical, biological and molecular systems.

The Certificate will prepare students to transition into careers in emerging nanotechnology industries as nanotechnicians in research and development corporations, fabrication, biology/agriculture, medicine, electronics, and material science.
