# Nanotechnology Engineering at the University of Waterloo

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.

Waterloo's Nanotechnology Engineering programs are offered collaboratively through the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering, and the Chemistry Department in the Faculty of Science.

SannTek Labs, a Kitchener-based startup that developed out of a 2018 Nanotechnology Engineering Capstone Design project, has just completed a successful round of seed financing that will inject \$2.6 million into the company’s efforts to develop its cannabis-detecting breathalyzer.

3. Nov. 15, 2019IuvoDerm wins Engineer of the Future funding

Congratulations to fourth-year Nanotechnology Engineering students Tiana Colantonio, Hillman Leung, Adrianus Sukuramsyah and Jonathan Wu for winning two micro-seed funding awards for their IuvoDerm wound-care product through the Engineer of the Future Fund. The team is aiming to help the many diabetic patients who suffer from nerve damage to heal faster from foot wounds, which would minimize their risk of life-changing complications.
