Introduction to Nanotechnology

September 19, 2005

Foothill DeAnza will offer a new course in nanotechnology for students and working professionals who want an introduction to the subject. This course, which will be a survey of the emerging field of nanotechnology, is intended for a multidisciplinary audience with a variety of backgrounds. Students will be introduced to the underlying principles and theory relevant at the nanoscale dimension. After completion of the course, students should have a broad understanding of the industry and its potential and be familiar with current and future applications in materials, biology, physics, chemistry, computing, electronics, energy, medicine, and a variety of consumer markets.

Application and registration deadline is September 21st. Late registration is available with instructor’s consent.

Registration information here

Classes meet Wednesday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Also available as an online course.

Course # Engr 76, Call # 3796 is physical and #3797 is online

Instructors: Robert D. Cormia and Neha Kumar-Choksi (co-teachers)

Classes run from September 26th through December 10th.

Course requirements: College level science, e.g., chemistry, physics, and biology, or equivalent is recommended. Familiarity with web searching, especially for peer-reviewed articles, is essential. Desire to explore new technologies related to a particular domain, such as electronics, energy, medicine, etc., is a key success factor.

Topics to include:

  • Introduction to the practice and discipline of nanotechnology
  • Scientific principles of nanotechnology and the emergence of properties at the nanoscale dimension.
  • Carbon Nanotube Technologies (CNT)
  • MEMS and NEMS – Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems
  • Nanofabrication
  • Polymers and organic molecules
  • Surface and colloid chemistry
  • Thin film applications
  • Semiconductors and Nanoelectronics
  • Technical challenges to nanotechnology
  • History and possible future trends of nanotechnology
  • Societal and technology issues that may impede the adoption of nanotechnology
  • Career opportunities in nanotechnology
