Highlights and Updates of the NUE Nanotechnology Concepts, Opportunities, Research and Education (NanoCORE) Program
Abstract:The NanoCORE (Nanotechnology Concepts, Opportunities, Research and Education) and NanoCORE II projects at the Florida A&M University – Florida State University (FAMU-FSU) College of Engineering were designed to introduce aspects of nanoscale science and engineering into the core undergraduate curriculum. The goal of the NUE NanoCORE program is to provide multiple opportunities for undergraduate students at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering to develop their nanotechnology literacy and to explore specific nanotechnology topics relevant to their majors. The NanoCORE program integrates nanoscale science and engineering (NSE) as components of the undergraduate engineering curricula and creates opportunities for undergraduates to pursue nanotechnology related research activities. During the four-year period, approximately 2,100 students have enrolled in courses that included the NSE modules and labs. Moreover, thirty-five undergraduate students have participated in the NanoCORE undergraduate research program. The NanoCORE program also brings together faculty from across the College of Engineering and thus fosters an interdisciplinary and collaborative academic setting.
