Transcript of Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology Description • Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter on the nanoscale.

• Different physical, chemical, or biological properties of materials can appear on the nanoscale. Typical Day -Working in the lab
-Performing experiments
-Doing Research Working Conditions -Work indoors
-Work in laboratory
-Some computer simulations Highlights -Working on new and interesting problems

-Work on things that no one has worked on before

-Come up with new technologies Education -Associate's Degree
-Bachelor's Degree
-Master's Degree
-PhD Potential Places of Employment -Auto and Aerospace Industries
-Military and National Security
-Sporting Goods
-Medicine and pharmaceuticals
-Food (quality control and packaging)
