Indian nanotech students report no real classes

Abstract:
More than a year after the fanfare-filled launch of the National Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the University of Madras in India, its first 11 students are still waiting to receive a nanotech education, according to a report in the Indian newspaper The Hindu.

"From July to mid-September, we didn't have any class at all," the paper quoted one student as saying. "We were sitting under the trees, we didn't even have a classroom."

Another student told the paper that the center, which had promised to attract Nobel laureates, had not hired any staff.
