Welcome NanoEngineering Undergrads


The newest department in the Jacobs School of Engineering, the Department of NanoEngineering, welcomed its inaugural freshman class in September, 2010. Founded in 2007, the department has grown rapidly and now includes 14 faculty members. NanoEngineering is inherently interdisciplinary in that it often utilizes biochemical processes to create nanoscale materials designed to interact with synthetic inorganic materials. NanoEngineering is impacting a wide array of developments in engineering, medicine, technology and daily life. The initial entering class of approximately 48 students is expected to grow to more than 200 in subsequent academic years. In addition to NanoEngineering core courses, students will also select a “focus area” in Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or Materials Science.
