Original Abstract

The emerging field of nanoscience and nanotechnology is leading to a technological revolution in the new millennium. The application of nanotechnology has enormous potential to greatly influence the world in which we live. From consumer goods, electronics, computers, information and biotechnolo-gy, to aerospace defense, energy, environment, and medicine, all sectors of the economy are to be profoundly impacted by nanotechnology. Therefore, nanotechnology education should be integrated into mainstream undergraduate engineering curricula. Government, industry and university bodies should foster collaboration.
