B.Tech. (Nanotechnology Engineering)

Why take this course?

Nanotechnology is an emerging area that engages almost every technical discipline - from chemistry to computer science - in the study and application of extremely tiny materials. It is one among the top ranked subject related to academic and research. Nanotechnology is the branch of Technology that deals with the study of extremely small things and can be used across all fields of science such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering. It is a rapidly expanding area of research with huge potential to revolutionize our lives and to provide technological solutions to our problems in agriculture, energy, the environment and medicine. In India, Bengaluru and Chennai are the manufacturing hubs for IT and Medicine. The Indian Government has already started Nano science and Nanotechnology initiatives and various funding agencies like Department of Science and Technology.
