Rapid Increase in the Number of Worldwide Nanotechnology Degree Programs
Date:6/16/2010

Academic nanosciences and nanotechnologies programs now exceed 250 individual degree offerings around the globe.

Berlin (PRWEB) June 15, 2010 -- Going hand in hand with the rise of research funding and commercial investment into nanotechnology, universities and colleges around the world are increasing their degree offerings in this field.

Only three years ago, there were no more than 150 programs worldwide - now there are over 250 in more than 25 countries.

Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of nanosciences and nanotechnologies, these specialized academic degree programs span many disciplines ranging from biology, chemistry, and physics to medicine, engineering, and electronics; even MBAs are offered as dual degree options for nanotechnology students.

While there is an emphasis on Master's programs, with almost half of all degree offerings, roughly one half of all programs can be found in Europe and one third in North America.

The UK is the country with the most Master's programs (30) and the U.S. by far has the most dedicated Ph.D. programs (24).

Not surprisingly, with 61 offerings the U.S. is the country with the single most nanotechnology degree and certification programs, followed by the UK (38) and Germany (30).

A complete overview of all programs can be found in the nanoDEGREE database. This is the latest directory offering from Nanowerk, which recently also introduced
