The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science offers two degree paths and the option of a minor for students wishing to pursue studies in Microsystems, Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials. The degrees are intended to meet the significantly different needs and interest areas of individual students.

  1. A student who wishes to become a Licensed Professional Engineer and work as a design engineer in the area of Microsystems and Nanotechnology is encouraged to follow the ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics with Microsystems and Nanomaterials Engineering emphasis. This degree is accredited and will allow the student to take the Fundamentals in Engineering (FE) exam. As with other ABET degrees, additional requirements beyond their education are needed to take the Professional Engineering (PE) licensure examination. Students in this degree program are encouraged to work closely with their advisor to select electives that will best support them in their desired career path.
     
  2. A student who is interested in graduate studies in Microsystems and Nanomaterials is encouraged to follow the Bachelor of Science in Microsystems and Nanomaterials degree program. This program is not intended to prepare a student to become a Professional Engineer. The program is intended to prepare a student for postgraduate studies in areas related to Microsystems and Nanomaterials. Because of the widely varying graduate school requirements, students are encouraged to work closely with their advisor to create a customized program, within the constraints of the degree requirements, that is most appropriate to support their career goals.
     
  3. A student who wishes to learn more about microsystems and nanotechnology and to participate in interdisciplinary research in this area can also consider the Minor in Microsystems and Nanotechnology.  This minor is particularly compatible with degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics and Mechanical Engineering.
