Robert K. Ehrmann, Managing Director at the Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization (CNEU), will be presenting to current and prospective students who are interested in the CNEU Program on Monday, November 28th at the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Blair Center, located in the Logan Valley Mall. This information session will begin at 6pm.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about educational and career opportunities available through an agreement between Pennsylvania Highlands and the Penn State Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology (NMT) Partnership.
Nanotechnology is a growing field in the United States, and by 2020 it is estimated that 70% of all new advanced technology products will incorporate some form of nanotechnology. The partnership between PSU and Penn Highlands will provide an opportunity for students in the region to develop valuable technical and scientific skills in this thriving field.
Students enrolled in various Pennsylvania Highlands’ academic programs can qualify for the Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology Capstone Semester at Penn State University Park.
Interested students will work with College faculty to select specific courses and develop the skills required for admission into the program. These include college level algebra, chemistry, physics, writing, computer skills, and interpersonal skills.
