Nanotechnology education

Nanotechnology education is being offered by more and more universities around the world. The first program involving nanotechnology was offered by the University of Toronto's Engineering Science program, where nanotechnology could be taken as an option. Generally, nanotechnology education involves a multidisciplinary natural science education with courses in nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, math and molecular biology.

Here is a list of universities offering nanotechnology education, and the degrees offered in nanotechnology, Bachelor of Science in Nanotechnology, Master of Science in Nanotechnology, and PhD in Nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology in Schools

In addition to several tertiary programs, nanotechnology is being taught as part of science studies at high schools. The Journal of Nanoeducation provides articles on K-12 initiatives.

The St Helena Innovative Nanotechnology Education (SHINE) program is an integrated science elective being taught at St Helena Secondary College in Melbourne, Australia. The nanotechnology programs include an investigation into nanotechnology and nanoscience for year 10. These modules cover scale, properties, performance materials, health, consumer products, cosmetics and the future social implications of nanotechnology. The second curriculum is a unit for year 11 Chemistry titled 'What is Gold?'.
