Nanotechnology Engineering is a multi-disciplinary engineering field, which draws from and benefits areas such as materials science and engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine.
Nanotechnology has helped the world combat the COVID-19 Pandemic through the development of lifesaving mRNA vaccines. It also allowed societies to continue to engage in crucial business, educational and social activities during the pandemic in the virtual world through advancements in integrated circuits.
In Canada’s leading Nanotechnology Engineering Program, you’ll use principles from biology, chemistry, electronics, and quantum physics to create materials, biomedical devices and machines. You will work with materials far too small to see with the naked eye.
During your time in Waterloo's Nanotechnology Engineering program, you will gain theoretical and practical knowledge and experience through labs, courses, and co-op positions.
You'll apply what you learn in the real world over six co-op terms: creating an impressive résumé, exploring different career areas, and earning money to help pay for your education. By graduation, you'll have the technical skills and workplace acumen to research and innovate cutting-edge technologies of the future and manipulate matter at the atomic level.
