Undergraduate Education

The far-reaching and diverse applications that are being realized for nanotechnology underscore the importance of outreach and education that supports future development at this important scientific frontier. At the University of Iowa, educational programs are being developed at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum, including: freshman seminar and special topics courses, incorporation of nanoscience experiments into introductory chemistry courses and advanced undergraduate laboratory courses.

NNI also offers a Nanoscience and Nanotechnology NSF-REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program that has been running continuously since 2008.
