Nanotechnology is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary field that holds great promise for new applications in a wide range of industries that have large societal impact, including consumer goods, electronics, computers, energy, biotechnology, and medicine. It is projected that 2 million workers are needed in nanotechnology-based businesses by 2020 in the United States alone. This field is expected to continue to grow and increasingly in need of trained scientists and engineers. The University of Arkansas offers Nanotechnology Minor which provides students with comprehesive education in nanotechnology through a combination of hands-on training, coursework and research experience in nanotechnology.
