Pioneering Multi-Institutional Collaborative Nanotechnolgy Education

Using Internet2 videoconferencing technology, Lehigh University is leading the way in web-based education by sharing collaborative, multi-institutional, graduate level education among members of the Materials Pennsylvania Coalition (MatPAC). The MatPAC, which was founded by Lehigh, was recently adopted at Nanotechnology 2002 as the model of education to expedite nanotechnology education across the state of Pennsylvania. It will serve as a model for collaborative nanotechnology education, research, and technology transfer among PA universities and colleges.

Graduate Certificate Program in Nanomaterials

Four course certificate program enables students to gain a working knowledge of a broad range of instrumentation for solving nanotechnology problems.
Credits earned towards a certificate may be accepted as part of a master's or Ph.D. degree program in materials science and engineering, or the master's degree in nanomaterials currently being developed.
