Resources for Students

Pre-University Students

If you are a student interested in nanotechnology, there are many resources on this site that will help you find out more.  They include basic information about nanotechnology, and links to many online resources including fun and informative nanotechnology games.

A good place to start is learning about different nanomaterials and the many applications of nanotechnology.  We have also included profiles of professionals working in the field, to give you a feel for what it might be like to pursue a career in nanotechnology.  There are a few spotlights on companies and universities that apply nanotechnology to solve a range of challenges.

If you might be interested in studying nanotechnology at the university level, there are many countries with universities offering nanotechnology degrees.

University Students

If you are already a university student and are are either already studying nanotechnology or are interested in finding out more about the field, we can help.

We offer descriptions of nanomaterials, and a wide range of applications.  We provide profiles of professionals working in the field, as well as spotlights on companies and universities that are using nanotechnology to solve a range of challenges. There are many other resources as well as lists of universities offering nanotechnology degrees.

When the terms “nanoscience” and “nanotechnology” first appeared, there was a tendency to treat them as a separate scientific discipline or as a new industry. Most practitioners nowadays tend to view nanoscience and nanotechnology as interrelated with other disciplines.
