Why Nanotechnology Studies ?

The minor in Nanotechnology Studies is an interdisciplinary, research-intensive program intended for students in majors from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences or the College of Arts and Sciences who wish to learn about the emerging field of nanotechnology. The coursework in the minor will provide a broad background in the science, design, manufacture, and societal, health, and environmental impacts of nanomaterials and nanoscale structures and their applications in engineering and health related areas. The inclusion of a minimum of two semesters of research in the students' own major areas, as well as choice of technical electives, will allow for integration into current interests and disciplines, and will provide knowledge and skills valuable to students planning to seek employment or graduate studies in fields related to the engineering, business, policy or the broader impact of nanotechnology.

AREAS OF STUDY:

SAMPLE COURSES:

  • Materials Chemistry
  • Nanofabrication in Biomedical Applications
  • Solid State Physics
  • Technology Assessment

ADMISSION INFO:

All courses for the minor must be passed with an average grade of B or higher. Completion of the minor requires 18-22 credits.

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • Assistant Research Scientist
  • Clinical Research Monitor
  • Research Scientist
  • Nanotechnology Research Assistant

RECENT EMPLOYERS:

  • New York University
  • Frederick National Laboratories
  • Applied Sciences Inc.
  • Harvard University
