This minor is designed to offer students a working knowledge of nanoscience principles and industrial applications, and to understand the societal and technology issues that may impede the adoption of nanotechnology. In addition, students are expected to develop the ability to communicate effectively, work collaboratively, and identify paths and requisite knowledge and skills for nanotechnology careers. With the service learning component built into the three core courses, students completing the minor will only need a fourth SL-designated course of their choice to receive a UCF Service-Learning certificate.
