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.
