What is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology is one of the most powerful engines of innovation and offers a myriad of opportunities for STEM careers.

Combining computer science, engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, and more, it inspires cross-disciplinary critical thinking by its very nature.

With its wide range of practical applications, including in energy technology, advanced computing, public safety, and air and water purification, nanotechnology is foundational to the ongoing global “21st-century Industrial Revolution,” influencing leading research and technologies.

By 2025, the federal government projects it will reach a market size of $3-5 trillion – and nanomanufacturing alone will account for 6 million well-paying American jobs.

Learn the skills for the STEM jobs of the future!
