Professor Zhou explained that Nanotechnology is the study of science and engineering on a molecular scale. You can bet that brains are a huge part of this program that studies the molecular bases of products such as cosmetics, stain-resistance fabrics, anti-bacterial products and sports equipment.
Northwest Vista offers three programs for nanotechnology. In just two years with basic biology, physics, and seven nanotechnology classes you qualify for an associate’s degree. In the four-year university track more advanced classes are offered. Finally, the certification program consists of only one year of nanotech classes.
According to Zhou, Northwest Vista’s nanotechnology program has maintained a 100% job placement for graduates. Since nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary study students can be placed in areas like electronics, physics, chemistry and more.
