Transcript of Post Secondary Plan

Post-secondary plan Andrew Corbett Salary ranges Post Secondary options Occupation What is great about this field is that it is dynamic, most Nanoengineers will go into a related manufacturing, consulting or health care field. In alberta, this relates highly to engineering consulting for the oilfeils. Even high rates of manufacturing jobs are becoming available at corporations such as MITRE engineering.
The offered job is kept slightly secrative, but a basic description is that they need a nanoengineer to help design and collaberate the prototyping of electromechanical systems. Future Trends Nanoengineer Nanoengineers manipulate and study cells, proteins, molecules and atoms from one to onehundred nanometers. In this career their are many different fields and applications. Places of work include universities, offices, and laboratories. Work may run over weekends and evenings and is not quantitative in its hours. Universities and government labs are usually the biggest employers. Not much information is gathered on this occupation so it is hard to gain an accurate descripton, but researchers can start out making about 50,000 a year to about 110,000 canadian dollars and sometimes more. Professors of universites are paid about 120,000-150,000 depending on the scale of their woks, and this can vary. Job Industry and futre employment. https://sjobs.brassring.com/EN/asp/tg/cim_jobdetail.asp?jobId=1392238&partnerid=119&SiteId=69&type=search&JobReqLang=1&recordstart=1&codes=INDD http://alis.alberta.ca/occinfo/Content/RequestAction.asp?aspAction=GetHTMLProfile&format=html&occPro_ID=71042730&SNT_ID=25 As employment is involved, this is an emerging occupation. It is currently started being used in application for medicine, and environmental initiatives such as that with the oil sands. I believe with enough time, trends with this career will start to include the use of these nanotechnologies for medical reasons, for applications within the human body. These would serve as replacement cells, tissue repair, and other diverse uses for this technology. Volunteer work Volunteer work for this new and emerging occupation is sparse, and any opportunity is taken right away. Usually these opportunities require some form of training or specialization, and is very difficult to attain. Internship opportunities are usually the most readily available, usually in Europe due to the structured scientific community. Some organizations like these for volunteer work and internships include opportunities from the London Center for Nanotechnology. They have learning opportunities regularly and sometimes receive word of opportunities for these internships and volunteering at local laboratories and private sectors of this field as an assistant, usually helping with cleaning and safe disposal of waste products, and lab organization. Usually the only people to host internships is only private companies, and mostly American companies such as Alcor, which specializes in agricultural work, lab duties include culturing and taking observations and sampling different viruses and bacteria. University of Alberta offers four year bachelor of science degrees, with branches into nanotechnology and even nanotechnology , for material, computer, or electrical specializations . Edmonton does have a brand new nanotechnology research facility, and is detrimental to the learning effect. Both the University of Alberta, and U of C both also offer graduate courses in nanotechnology studies. There are only two universities in Alberta that offer any programs for this emerging field, and they were highlighted previously. For any advancement for the study of research in this field, it is usually required to at least have a masters degree, and is for government research, usually a doctorate is required. http://alis.alberta.ca/occinfo/Content/RequestAction.asp?aspAction=GetTitlesSearchEmergingOccs&Page=EmergingOccs&SNT_ID=55&format=html What I found about this presentation and activity was quite restricting. My preferential school is going to be, out of province and also have important and broad expansion opportunities. The most likely schools of choice would either be Queens for its excellent academic record, one of the highest, and grades for this school are needed to be high, around 85%, i have all required classes, Higher grades can always help with entrance. Dallhousie is another good renown school known for its fields in scientific research. In fact, one of the professors there was the inventor of the lithium ion battery. Awards
Academic Excellence: have an 85% or higher average in program of study, full time student with little university credits. up to 6,000$
Captain Thomas Ferrell Greenhalgh Graduate memorial scholarship: Awarded annualy to full time graduate students at the U of A engineering faculty with specializations in materials. 6,000$ every year.
TransAlta corporation memorial scholarship in Engineering: up to 1,500$ for high academic achievement. All of these awards are from the university of Alberta. https://www.registrar.ualberta.ca/ro.cfm?id=448 Bibliography
