Nanotech Certificate
  • Submitted for approval in fall 2005
  • Formally approved in summer 2006
  • Five courses in the engineering dept
  • Technical collaboration at partner institutions
  • SJSU, UCSC, NASA-ASL
  • Ask us for more information!

11
Our Philosophy
  • Nanotechnology is new, and not new!
  • We have been working at the atomic scale for over
    100 years (more or less)
  • STEM approach is our nano compass
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, Math
  • We are building out a new course and a new
    approach youre part of this work!

12
Summary
  • First course in nanotech certificate
  • Introduction to nanotechnology principles
  • Survey of nanotechnology applications
  • STEM approach to each course topic
  • Scenario based introduction to each topic
  • Team taught by real nanotechnologists
  • Science and engineering, plus technology!
