Nanoscience is the study of nanoscale materials, or extremely small things. These materials have proven and proposed uses across medical, environmental, industrial, energy, and many other fields.
The SFU Nanotechnology program is designed for students to explore this interdisciplinary field from a chemical perspective. Chemistry, which studies matter starting at the atomic scale and then with increasing size and complexity, inherently covers nanomaterials. Students in this program will gain an appreciation for critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, teamwork, and communication while studying the central science. They will also learn how to use modern laboratory techniques and instrumentation. Completion of this concentration will strongly prepare students to work in industry, with governmental agencies, or to further study in graduate school.

Students taking the Nanotechnology Concentration will complete one semester on the Penn State campus through the PA Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology (NMT) Partnership. This semester off-site maintains the same room/board and tuition costs as a semester on campus in Loretto.
