Govt to introduce nano technology courses in all universities
The government would shortly introduce nano technology courses in all universities in a bid to produce nano scientists.
Disclosing this at 5th Knowledge Millennium Summit organised by ASSOCHAM, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Dr D Purandeswari said nano faculties and courses would first commence in University of Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai, which have completed almost 150 years of their creation.
Subsequently, the nano courses and faculties could be extended in all other universities across the country.
India has been facing acute shortages of nano scientists particularly at times when their requirements had grown manifold in view of its relevance, said the Minister.
