Intro to Nanotechnology
College of Engineering
This sophomore/junior level course will give an overview of the field of nanotechnology by integrating themes from biology, chemistry, material science and engineering. Basic methods for fabrication, synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials will be presented and new applications of nanoscale structures and materials will be discussed. The course will allow students to become conversant in nanotechnology and to understand the terminology related to this topic used in popular media and scientific publications. The lectures will be supplemented with hands-on activities and guest lectures by researchers and industrial collaborators working in this area.
