DCC prepares for new academic year

Abstract:
Danville Community College has a lot in store for first-time and returning students to the campus this fall.

A brand new Student Center, new programs of study, and expanded course offerings are just some of the initiatives on tap for the start of the academic year. DCC's fall semester classes begin August 23 and registration will continue through the first week of classes.

An exciting addition to the fall line-up will be the debut of Introduction to NanoMaterials & Processes course (PHY 195), which introduces students to the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology.

The course has been created through funding from the National Science Foundation, with local industry partner Luna nanoWorks, and is intended to be the cornerstone to a proposed nanotechnology degree program. According to the National Science Foundation, nearly one million new nanotechnology-related jobs will be created in the U.S. by 2015.

Students taking the introductory nano class will have the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience with high-end scientific laboratory equipment that is usually available only to students at the university graduate level.
