The objective of the interdisciplinary nanotechnology minor is to provide students with skills and experiences that will help them better apply the knowledge gained in their majors to specialized problems in science and engineering whose roots are found at the nanometer scale. Nanotechnology serves as an intellectual nexus between many fields of science and engineering, and therefore makes an ideal common ground for interdisciplinary work. To work effectively in these specialized areas, students will develop interdisciplinary perspectives by satisfying the required distribution of courses for this minor.
Students are required to design a plan of study for this minor and submit the plan for approval by an advisor from their major program and the nanotechnology minor program. This plan of study helps ensure that students receive appropriate advising, and it must be approved at least two semesters prior to graduation.
Your plan of study must meet the following general requirements:
