The field of nanotechnology is currently undergoing an exciting period of discoveries. Focusing on the intersection of areas such as physics, biology, engineering, chemistry, computer science and more, nonotechnology, is rapidly expanding. Many researchers in academia and industries have expressed need for an academic program where students from diverse fields of sciences and engineering (molecular computing, quantum physics, chemistry, mechanical, electrical, computer etc.) can come together to learn and discuss the latest advances, with the overall objective of encouraging further development. This will need preparing engineering students with an ability to apply knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering to develop nanodevices and nanosystems. The challenge is to provide an interdisciplinary education to students through a well-structured curriculum covering broad aspects of basic sciences and engineering.
