Sami Shamoon College of Engineering Takes Nanotechnology Education Leadership Role in Israel: Launches state-of-the-art NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program to provide students with valuable hands-on nanotechnology skills and training

Skokie, IL | Posted on October 24th, 2011

"Becoming the first school in Israel to implement the state-of-the-art NanoProfessor Program ensures that SCE students will gain the professional training necessary to become leaders in Israel's nanotechnology industry," said Jehuda Hadad, president of SCE. "The cutting-edge NanoProfessor Program will help SCE offer a skilled workforce to the more than 65 Israeli corporations already engaged in nanotech-related businesses."

"We are excited to bring the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program to SCE to support the college in continuing Israel's tradition of scientific excellence," said Dean Hart, chief commercial officer at NanoInk. "Israel has the third largest concentration of nanotech startup companies in the world and the NanoProfessor Program will help meet the growing demand within Israel for nano-savvy workers by providing SCE students with valuable hands-on training using the same equipment and materials used by professionals in the nanotechnology field today."

The NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program aims to expand hands-on nanotechnology education from the cleanrooms of research-based universities to undergraduate classrooms. The program alternates between classroom lectures and hands-on lab work and includes a textbook authored by leading nanotechnology experts, covering the topics of Nanotechnology Basics, Nanophysics, Nanochemistry, Nanobiology and Environmental, Health, & Safety perspectives on nanotechnology.

In conducting the hands-on lab experiments, students learn the fundamentals for building custom-engineered nanoscale structures while working with state-of-the-art equipment including NanoInk's NLP 2000 Desktop NanoFabrication System, a student-friendly atomic force microscope (AFM), an advanced fluorescence microscope, and various chemical and biological materials used today within current and emerging nanotechnology applications.
