HBCU on the Cutting Edge of Nanotechnology

The new Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering has opened with its first 18 students in Greensboro, North Carolina. The new school is a cooperative effort between the University of North Carolina Greensboro and historically black North Carolina A&T State University.

Nanoscience studies objects at the molecular level. Students at the new school will be able to examine and work with items that are 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Only about 10 other universities in the nation offer degree programs in nanotechnology.
