Minor in MSNT
UW-Platteville’s minor in microsystems and nanotechnology is designed to prepare students to contribute to this rapidly developing field. In this minor, students build on their knowledge bases in their chosen disciplines (biology, chemistry, electrical engineering, engineering physics, or mechanical engineering). Students are introduced to the basic issues and ideas of microsystems/nanotechnology and to the interdisciplinary body of knowledge that allows scientists and engineers from different backgrounds to collaborate at the micro/nano scale. Students also gain training in experimental techniques for micro/nano scale fabrication and characterization, as well as participate in a research project.
The microsystems/nanotechnology minor consists of 24 credits, with some of these credits overlapping with several existing programs. By careful selection of elective courses within a student’s major, the student may complete this minor with only six credits beyond the number required for graduation.
