As the ability to create faster and smarter silicon based devices approaches its finite limits, the world has turned to nanoscience to continue the information processing evolution. Nanoscience involves the study and observation of phenomena on the dimensional scale of nanometers, a unit measuring one billionth of a meter (3 - 4 atoms wide). Mastery of this field is essential in order to create smarter, faster and cheaper computer based products beyond the next decade.

With this important task in mind, the goal of nanotechnology is to establish new paradigms for information processing using the characteristics of electron transport unique to nanoscale molecular structures and to use chemical synthesis to design molecular structures with carefully crafted properties. This work has the potential to impact major disciplines in addition to electronics including photonics, biology, neuroscience and medicine.

These certification courses are taught by professors engaged in Nanotechnology related research from disciplines such as Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. This exciting field is rapidly evolving and is the focus of much current research.

"This program has given me a chance for an Ivy league, world class education without impact to my career. The class selection is outstanding and the class format enables online participants to take the same class as the students on campus. It is very challenging, but extremely rewarding."
Sandra McDonald, AT&T
