About NanoEngineering

Nanoengineering is the practice of engineering on the nanoscale, wherein the unique and enabling aspects of a nanoscale material or structure are used to create a device to be utilized by mankind. Nanoengineering is inherently interdisciplinary. The research activities of the NE Department are focused on four main areas: (a) Biomedical Nanotechnology, (b) Molecular and Nanomaterials, (c) Nanotechnologies for Energy and the Environment, and (d) Computational Nanoscience and Engineering. The department also administers the Chemical Engineering (CENG) Program.
