The Nanotechnology product market is growing rapidly. Nanotechnology is said to be the art and science of manipulating matter at a molecular and atomic scale. While discussions on storing a high volume of information in miniature gadgets happened as early as 1959, it was only in the 1980s, it emerged as a relevant field of study.

Overview  

 

                          Nanotechnology refers to molecular devices smaller than 1 micron (1 μm) on the “nano” scale. One nanometer (nm) is one billionth or 10-9 of a meter. … Both approaches give an insight into the potential breakthroughs in clinical research that might be accomplished with nanotechnology.

About the Course

 

Nanotechnology has been compared to the great events of human history like the industrial revolution or the discovery of antibiotics.  Nanotechnology is the application of science to utilize nano size tools and matter for applications not possible at larger sizes. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter and nanomaterials are typically one to 100 nanometers in diameter. But because of this nano-size, the characteristics and properties change so dramatically, that in addition to the new applications, they pose new risks as well as opportunities for society.

 

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

 

Identify statutes and regulations and policies that regulate nanotechnology and the federal agencies that apply these laws.

 

Program Benefits

  • Nanotechnology can actually revolutionize a lot of electronic products, procedures, and applications. The areas that benefit from the continued development of nanotechnology when it comes to electronic products include nanotransistors, nanodiodes, OLED, plasma displays, quantum computers, and many more.
  • Nanotechnology can also benefit the energy sector. The development of more effective energy-producing, energy-absorbing, and energy storage products in smaller and more efficient devices are possible with this technology. Such items like batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells can be built smaller but can be made to be more effective with this technology.
  • Another industry that can benefit from nanotechnology is the manufacturing sector that will need materials like nanotubes, aerogels, nanoparticles, and other similar items to produce their products with. These materials are often stronger, more durable, and lighter than those that are not produced with the help of nanotechnology.
  • In the medical world, nanotechnology is also seen as a boon since these can help with creating what is called smart drugs. These help cure people faster and without the side effects that other traditional drugs have. You will also find that the research of nanotechnology in medicine is now focusing on areas like tissue regeneration, bone repair, immunity and even cures for such ailments like cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases

                                NANOTECHNOLOGY  – The World of  small things

The Nanotechnology product market is growing rapidly. Nanotechnology is said to be the art and science of manipulating matter at a molecular and atomic scale. While discussions on storing a high volume of information in miniature gadgets happened as early as 1959, it was only in the 1980s, it emerged as a relevant field of study.

Nanotechnology comes into use in1) healthcare – in the development of new implants, tissue-engineered devices, and drug delivery systems for cancer and other infectious diseases. 2)In the energy sector – more efficient solar cells and storage devices and 3) in the electronics division –  smaller devices with high fidelity and accuracy – all will be the future.

Today, scientists and engineers are taking control of atoms and molecules, manipulating them and putting them to use with an extraordinary degree of precision. Governments and businesses are also investing huge amounts of money in nanotechnology research and development. The scope of the subject is immense. It touches every sphere of life and discipline including physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and automobiles. Nanotechnology is a suitable career course for graduates in physics, chemistry, biotechnology, medical and pharmacy. A bachelor’s course is more theory-based. As a nanotechnology course requires a more practical intense approach, it is important to have well-equipped laboratory facilities. With the arrival of new tools, nanotechnology has become an enabling technology – be it mechanical, electrical, civil or materials engineering.

As the subject is inter-disciplinary, the syllabus is designed to educate students in the basics of nanoscience and nanotechnology in addition to basic sciences –physics, chemistry, and biology. Students are guided to do major projects in collaboration with national and international institutes. Since Nanotechnology is a special branch that essentially combines STEM – Science ( Physics, Chemistry & Biology), Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics – it is opening up job prospects for students specializing in all the mentioned subjects.

SKILLS:

  • Good Mathematical & Computer Programming skills
  • Adequate Laboratory training for expert handling of advanced equipment
  • Ability to learn & adapt to new techniques
  • Have a systematic way of working
  • A natural propensity for research work
  • Keep track of latest science news, books, and research journals/magazines

JOB PROSPECTS: Being an advanced study subject M.Tech/Ph.D. in Nanotechnology are in high demand and are paid quite highly.

Great demand in the departments of Nano-Medicine, Bio-Informatics, Stem Cell Development, Pharmaceutical companies, Nano-Toxicology and Nano Power generating sectors

ELIGIBILITY: Should be well- grounded in science subjects.

Have a basic science degree in STEM subjects

Should have a scientific bent of mind and aptitude for research

Should be committed, dedicated and ready for hard work.
