Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology - ARCHIVE

University College (2 NMT): Penn State Fayette, Penn State Hazleton, Penn State McKeesport, Penn State Wilkes-Barre, Penn State York

This degree prepares graduates for technical positions in the expanding fields of nanofabrication technology or professional nanomanufacturing technology, biotechnology, and/or work in biomedical industries (bionanofabrication). There are two options provided; both require a capstone semester to be taken at the NMT Facility at the University Park campus where students take six ESci courses (3 credits each) of instruction for a total of 18 credits.

NANOMANUFACTURING ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY OPTION (2NMT/ET): This option helps prepare graduates for technical positions in the field of nanofabrication technology. The primary objective is to provide a broad foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of nanofabrication manufacturing, electrical and electronic circuits, digital circuits, nanofabrication manufacturing equipment, processing and testing. The program will also articulate with Pennsylvania Department of Education-approved Tech Prep programs. Secondary students who have graduated from a program covered by an assigned Penn State Articulation Agreement may be eligible for special admission procedures and/or advanced placement.

NANOMANUFACTURING SCIENCE OPTION (2NMT/SC): The Nanofabrication Science option is designed to provide for the basic educational needs of students who want to pursue professional programs in nanomanufacturing technology fields primarily in the biotech and biomedical industries (bionanofabrication). The program provides a fundamental group of science courses and a comprehensive group of nanomanufacturing technology courses to those who wish to pursue employment opportunities where such knowledge is necessary or desirable. The program offers a pathway for students to obtain jobs in new and exciting fields, as well as older, established disciplines that are upgrading with this new and emerging technology. Graduates of the program may qualify for admission to the baccalaureate degrees in science. Students who plan to continue in baccalaureate degrees are encouraged to work closely with their advisers.

For the Associate in Engineering Technology degree in Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology, a minimum of 66-70 credits is required.
