Wayne State gets NSF grant for training future nanoengineers

August 19, 2013


Wayne State University has received a $200,000 Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education Grant from the National Science Foundation to develop an undergraduate certificate program geared toward training the next generation of nanoengineers. To aid in this initiative, researchers at Wayne State University are developing an undergraduate certificate program geared toward training the next generation of nanoengineers. The grant will prepare students for flexible employment opportunities and provide them with the necessary experience in cutting-edge technologies, said Guangzhao Mao, professor of chemical engineering in Wayne State's College of Engineering. "This new certificate program will help prepare students to gain experience in the field of nanoengineering, ultimately training them on emerging technologies," Mao said. "The program will aid in meeting the growing demands of Michigan's manufacturing economy and also other high-tech industries that are settling in the state."
