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 nanoJOBS, a free job posting service for the nanotechnology community.
Like all other Nanowerk databases and directories, these listings are freely accessible on the Nanowerk website.

A valuable addition to other Nanowerk services like the Nanomaterial Database™, the NanoBusiness section, various directories, or a packed events calendar, nanoDEGREE is yet another example of Nanowerk's continuing effort to provide relevant and high-quality content and services to the nanotechnology community that go far beyond just printing press releases.

About Nanowerk

Nanowerk.com is the authoritative website when it comes to information on all aspects of nanotechnologies. Nanowerk's high-quality science and business content is unmatched and highly relevant for a target audience involved in nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, chemistry, material sciences and engineering, medical technologies and pharmaceuticals, electronics, laboratory equipment, and all sectors involving state-of-the-art process technologies.

Unlike other nano-related websites, Nanowerk writes its own editorial content - Nanowerk Spotlights - resulting in a library with currently almost 1000 articles. This Nanowerk-exclusive feature, which has become a highly popular information source for academia and industry alike, looks at what's hot and new from around the globe. Some stories are more like an introduction to nanotechnology, some are about understanding current developments, and some are advanced reviews of leading edge research.
