What is Nanotechnology? (Scope and career options)

Nanotechnology is the branch of technology; it deals with extremely small things. It can be used for all the science fields such as chemistry, biology, material science and engineering.

This is rapidly expanding in the area of research. Their main motive is to revolutionize our lives and to provide technological solutions to our problems in agriculture, environmental and medical fields. Building small material which results into faster and powerful technology is nanotechnology. Nanotechnology was first discussed by Richard Feynman In 1959.

Application of nanotechnology in everyday life:

Nanotechnology is used in our daily life; the products and technology that we use are made with nanotechnology.

  • It is used in the production of high-tech material or microscopic devices.

  • Nanotechnology is used in manufacturing of clothes, sunglasses; cosmetic and silver nanoparticles are even used in packaging of food and household appliances.

  • Nano size components are used in DVD and CD player

  • In future it might get used in developing new machines and pharmaceutical.

What includes nanotechnology degree?

Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary natural science course with physic, chemistry, mathematics and molecular biology. Nanotechnology is both UG and PG level course.

 What is the scope of nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology has a Hugh scope in upcoming generation; it has third highest scope after IT and Internet. Bangalore and Chennai are manufacturing hub of IT and medicine

What are the career options?
