Nanotechnology - Clinical Trials Research

Curriculum Description

The Nanotechnology curriculum prepares students to characterize and fabricate materials for biological, textile, chemical, and electrical applications at the atomic level.

Course work includes biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and an extensive array of very detailed nanotechnology-specific courses, using high-tech equipment and complying with high-precision quality control and clean-room protocols with a multidisciplinary focus.

Graduates should qualify for various positions in industry and government, including research and development, materials testing and processing, optics and sensors, electron microscopy, and emerging nanotechnology industries.

The Clinical Trials Certificate prepares individuals to assist with research studies in a variety of settings including medical centers, hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, clinics, research facilities, nanotechnology and biotechnology companies, and physicians’ offices. To enroll in this certificate program the student must have already completed a science or health related degree, certification, or license.

The following represents one way in which the certificate can be completed. Students who aren’t able to follow the recommended curriculum model below should consult their academic advisor to be sure that they take courses in the best order for their success.
