Below are the existing and proposed courses that comprise the nanotechnology curriculum supporting the Nanotechnology Graduate Program. Such courses will be designated by the prefix NANO while also maintaining the standard departmental designation. For courses involving multiple instructors from two or more disciplines developed specifically for the NGP, only the NANO designation will be used. Note that appropriate course numbers for new courses will be provided by the contributing disciplines, whereas course numbers for existing courses will be preserved. In rare case of overlap under the NANO designation, adjustment will be made to course numbering.

Upgrading of existing courses and the development of new courses will be closely coordinated with core faculty involved. It is fully anticipated that more courses will be added to the curriculum as new faculty members with relevant expertise and interest are recruited and when other non-core faculty members develop and expand their capabilities in the area of nanotechnology.
