For nanoelectronics,which branch in engineering undergraduate helpful

  1. Feb 5, 2008 #1
    Friend,this year in 2008 , i am going to take admission in engineering undergraduate program in india.In india there is no scope for nanotechnology/nanoelectronics. Which branch should i choose during Btech/BS, so that it will be helpful in learning nanoelectronics during MS?For financial reasons i cant go abroad now,so i am planning to go for Btech/BS in india.

    What's Btech? I've always saw nanotechnology as a physics/electrical engineering type of area.

    engineering science. Well basically engineering science and nanotechnology is same thing.

    b tech is in india as BS is in usa.simplu entry level of engineering

    hi there, if u're talkin abt nanoelectronics in specific, u shud opt for electronics engineering.
    or if u're interested more in nanoprocessing/fabrication, u can try chemical engg.
    even mechanical engg could help you if u're interested in NEMS (Nano electro mechanical systems).
    Nanotech is interdisciplinary, so u cant confine yourself to one discipline. even if u major in say jus electronics engg, u could out of ur self-interest and initiatives try learning the other related stuff that fall outside the domain of EE.
