          Nanoengineering (NA75)

          The NanoEngineering graduate degree program prepares students to enter the Nanotechnology workforce, as well as prepare students to enter a wider variety of engineering, science and/or medical career paths. It is clear that Nanotechnology-based industries will play a major role in the future economy. Our proposed curriculum is specifically intended to develop graduate students to be team leaders and innovators in corporations that have nanotechnology-centric applications, where our graduates will play the critical role to integrate across the varied disciplines involved, and help overcome the inherent challenges of engineering at the nanoscale. Their unique training in NanoEngineering will enable them to naturally become these leaders.
