New Master of Science program in Nanotechnology

Within the reporting period, the University of Pennsylvania launched a Master of Science in Engineering program in Nanotechnology. The program prepares students for this profession with a solid foundation in the three technical core areas: Nanofabrication, Devices and Properties, and Biotechnology; as well as Commercialization, and Societal Impacts of Technology. Courses are offered by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Arts and Sciences, and the Wharton School. The program is currently accepting applications for its first cohort to begin in the fall of 2010. The education and research expertise developed for the IGERT program played a major role in creating the Masters degree program. (
