Massive Open Online Course for Nanotechnology

“Spearheaded by faculty members at NC State, Duke University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, the new online course opens a wealth of opportunities for students, entrepreneurs and business people to learn about and use machinery involved in making high-tech products and studying materials on a molecular scale.”

A Maker’s Course at is now open to register and free to audit. A certificate of completion is availalbe for $49 and financial aid is available. This course has been developed by faculty and staff experts in nano-fabrication, electron beam microscopy, and nano-characterization through the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network (RTNN). The RTNN offers training and use of the tools demonstrated in this course to schools and industry through the United States National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure program. The tools demonstrated in this course are available to the public through the RTNN.
