Prince George's Community College: EGR 2990H : BIO 2990H : CHM 2990H: Honors Seminar in Engineering and Science
Nanotechnology for Fall 2008

Course Description:

This is a seminar course that introduces emerging issues in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics.

This semester's course covers the emerging technologies in the nanoscale range. Nanotechnology impacts virtually every discipline, including biology, chemistry, physics,computational science, and engineering. The government has put into place high-level initiatives to ensure that the nanotechnologies' breathtaking promises can be realized to enhance both innovation and economic and environmental benefits. A high-caliber college-level education is crucial to this effort and an introduction to this topic will benefit the STEM student in his further studies. This course will consist of student's and invited guest's in-depth presentations that will bring to the class the latest investigations and findings in nanotechnology.

Other seminar courses in the future will bring different emerging issues.

This is a one credit course. This course maybe used as a supplement for different science and engineering courses especially in certain transfer situations.

Pre-requisites: Completion of a minimum of 18 credits of STEM courses, GPA 3.0 and Honors student, or permission of instructor.
1 class.
