What is Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology?
Nanofabrication involves the manufacturing of structures in the nano-range (10-1000 times the size of an atom) and in the micro-range (more than about 1000 times the size of an atom). This high-tech industry of the future grew out of blending chemistry, biology, and semiconductor microelectronics “chip” manufacturing. What can I do with a Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology Degree? Program graduates become employed in a variety of well-paying careers, including: • Pharmaceuticals • Biomedical applications • Information storage • Fiber-optic communications (internet) • Microelectronics (flat-screen televisions and computer screens) Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology at Penn State: The Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology Program can be tailored to students’ goals by providing opportunities to choose from courses in biology, chemistry, or engineering. Students in nanofabrication technology need some chemistry background, an understanding of electrical measurements and basi
