Nanotechnology engineering

  1. Sep 27, 2013 #1
    what do you think of it ?
    what are the main career prospects for a phd in nanotechnology engineering ?
    also how much quantum mechanics do NT engineers study ?
    can i major in physics and then go for an MSc in nanotechnology ?

    I was a visiting scientist in a nanotechnology group - mechanical engineering - they were studying some fundamental properties, working on controlled, repeatable approaches to growing CNTs with desired characteristics, and designing and implementing applications: from bio, to sensor, to structural.

    I think that it is a wide-open field, with a great deal of promise.
