Molecular and Nanoscale Engineering

Molecular and nanoscale engineering is a broad but promising field that will help develop future technologies and change the world. Building from the precision of molecular and nanoscale constructs, new materials and responsive/adaptive platforms can be designed to translate advances from physics, chemistry, biology, and computational sciences into functional tools.

Molecular and nanoscale engineering integrates concepts from electrical and materials engineering with nanoscience to prepare students to work with cyber-physical systems or other responsive intelligent systems that include nanoscale building blocks. Students can pursue their interest in sensing technologies, energy production, food science, and national security, among many other areas of study. Molecular and nanoscale engineering will equip students to adapt to and design with new nanomaterials, allowing them to think big while working small.
