Penn State nanotechnology ranks among best in Small Times survey

Abstract:
In its annual survey of universities' nanotechnology programs, Small Times Magazine, a leading provider of news and analysis on nanotechnology, Micro-electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and microsystems, ranked respondents based on 26 questions related to funding, facilities, patenting, company formation, research, publishing, and micro- and nano-specific courses and degree programs.

In the category of Research, Penn State ranked No. 1 among those universities responding to the survey. Other areas in which Penn State ranked in the top 10 include education, No. 4, and commercialization, also No. 4. Other leading institutions in the survey were State University of New York at Albany, which led in both facilities and education categories, and Arizona State University, which was first in commercialization.
