Nanotechnology Minor

The interdisciplinary minor in nanotechnology is primarily aimed at science and engineering majors who wish to become more aware of the properties of matter at the nanoscale, the potential usefulness of those properties, and their social and economic implications. It will also appeal to students interested in science and technology policy who wish to expand their knowledge of science and technology.

Requirements for the minor:

1. Required courses for all minors (Three courses):

2. Elective physical science course:

Any course outside of the student’s major department that counts toward that department’s major.

3. Elective Social Science or Humanities course:

Any social science or humanties course that focuses on science, technology, and society.

Some examples include:

4. The student’s senior writing, research, or design project should involve elements of nanoscience or nanotechnology.

This senior project should be approved by one of the Nanotechnology program directors.
