Nanoscience and Nanotechnology lay at the cutting edge of modern scientific development. They teach you how to research, create and work with extremely small things across a multitude of science fields, ranging from physics and chemistry, to biotechnology, medicine, electronic engineering, civil engineering, and materials engineering.
During a Bachelor’s or Master’s in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, you should expect to take classes in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Microscopy and Nanoscopy, Electronic Circuits, Quantum Mechanics, Micro and Nanofabrication, Immunology, etc.
As a future professional in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, you will explore ways to take advantage of nanoscale materials’ higher strength, lighter weight, increased control of light spectrum, and greater chemical reactivity.
These enhanced properties will allow you to design and develop new products and systems that can change the world. Such work can be of huge impact on fields such as medicine and pharmacy, food and industrial agriculture, energy, environmental sciences, or the aerospace industry.
To become a successful professional in this field you need to have a scientific mindset and the curiosity to explore, study and experiment.
After graduating with a Nanoscience and Nanotechnology degree, you can work in areas related to research, development, and innovation, such as communication technologies, energy production, new materials, nanometric scale manufacturing, food technology, pharmaceuticals, biomedicine, and security. Some jobs include research scientist, manufacturing engineer, director of research, holography and optics technician, and optical engineer.Read more
