    What do you mean by "good degree"? What make a degree "good" to you? Jobs? Money?

    Nanotechnology is certainly an area which many modern industries are very keen on developing.
    It's a large field ranging from IT to medical devices, and with many areas open for further exploration.

    The term "nanotechnology" has become so diluted that it now covers everything from biochemistry to metallurgy.
    Hence, the answer will very much depend on what you actually study.
