Information for

Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Nanotechnology Engineering

The Nanotechnology Engineering honours degree program is designed to provide a practical education in key areas of nanotechnology, including the fundamental chemistry, physics, and engineering of nanostructures or nanosystems, as well as the theories and techniques used to model, design, fabricate, or characterize them. Great emphasis is placed upon training with modern instrumentation techniques as utilized in the research and development of these emerging technologies.

The University awards a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in Nanotechnology Engineering to students who successfully meet all program requirements.

With our unique Undergraduate Engineering program in Nanotechnology Engineering, we aspire to be the best in the world, providing our students with a great environment for learning through well-balanced fundamental concepts, practical education and an excellent co-op experience.

Approximately 100 students are admitted to the Nanotechnology Engineering BASc program each year. Due to the popularity of the program, application levels have been high since its inception in 2005.
