UC Irvine extension introduces intensive seminar, "Nanotechnology: Applications and Opportunities"

Irvine, CA | Posted on August 16, 2006

UC Irvine Extension is offering a two-day Intensive Seminar Program entitled "Nanotechnology: Application and Opportunities" Friday and Saturday, September 15 and 16, 2006 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the UCI Learning Center in Orange.

The seminar, which will feature guest lecturers from both academia and business, will expose participants to the nanotech resources in their own backyards, and bring together local business leaders and university faculty currently applying these technologies. Participants will not only receive the opportunity to pose questions and exchange information with industry leaders, but will also learn how nanotechnology is already improving products and services and giving local companies in fields such as biomedical devices, medical diagnostics, advanced electronics, computing, biotechnology and synthetic chemistry a competitive edge.

"Nanotechnology will impact nearly every industry over the next few years," said Rogelio C. Rodriguez, director of engineering and science programs for UC Irvine Extension. "Small technologies are currently transforming product development and process improvements, and finding many applications ranging from integrated circuits to medical technology to consumer electronics."

Nanotechnology is defined as "technology development at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular range," and relies on multiple scientific disciplines such as materials science, chemistry, biology, electrical and mechanical engineering. With its interdisciplinary nature, commercial applications using nanoscale sciences will thrive in a collaborative environment where industry is exposed to both scientific and business-related nanotechnology advances.

UC Irvine Extension's course will cover nanotechnology concepts, tools for measuring and manufacturing nanostructures, nanomaterial uses, commercial application opportunities and business implications. At the end of the seminar students will be able to describe the emerging field of nanotechnology and identify its anticipated impact on commercial applications, analyze and relate how this emerging field can lead to technological advances and recognize the business potential to use or integrate nanotechnology applications into existing manufacturing processes.

"Nanotechnology: Application and Opportunities" will be taught by Vicki Clements, president of NanoSciences, Inc., a strategic marketing and consulting resource for companies concentrating on small technology applications. Clements specializes in early-stage commercialization strategies, including conducting market assessments and writing business plans for start-up ventures.

"Nanotechnology promises breakthroughs that will revolutionize the way we detect and treat disease, monitor and protect the environment, produce and store energy, and build complex structures as small as an electronic circuit or as large as an airplane," said Clements. "It will have a fundamental impact on many sectors of the economy, leading to new products, new businesses, new jobs, and even new industries."

The cost of the two-day intensive seminar program is $695 which includes all materials, lunch and refreshments.
