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.
