Nanotech PhotoThe Advanced Materials Technology industry is still in the exploratory stages. We offer one of the few degree programs worldwide, but the field is growing rapidly. According to the National Nanotechnology Initiative (http://www.nano.gov/), the industry is expected to generate two million new jobs by 2015, and trillions of dollars of investment. The demand for nano-scale materials is projected to grow an average of 30% per year over the next few years.

Are you interested in being on the cutting edge of a field that promises to revolutionize the world as we know it? Do you want to be a part of developing a 21st century battlesuit – bullet resistant, no thicker than spandex, and able to automatically react to chemical and biological agents? Do you want to develop new ways to detect and treat cancer? Would you like to develop clean fuels, semi-permanent tattoos or computers that can fit on the head of a pin? The future is now – are you ready to join us as we explore the wonderful world of nanotechnology.
