Preparatory classes for nanotechnology

In summary, the individual is considering a career in nanotechnology, but their school does not offer a concentration in the field unless they are in the chemistry program. They are seeking information on undergraduate courses that would be beneficial for a future master's degree in nanotechnology. Suggested courses include quantum mechanics and solid-state physics, as both are relevant to the study of nanoparticles.

I think having a career in nanotechnology might be the right choice. However, my school doesn't offer a concentration in nanotechnology unless you are in chemistry. I would like to know some undergraduate courses that would be helpful to me if I decided to go on to get a masters in nanotechnology.

Quantum mechanics courses in physics would be useful -- as there are observable quantum effects in things like nanoparticles. Solid-state physics would also be good.
