Nano- technology courses offer knowledge and training on the development
and modification of devices with atomic precision where the dimension of
particles is less than 100 nanometers. It is an interdisciplinary subject
that integrates the stud of Bio- informatics Bio- technology, Physics,
Chemistry as well as other disciplines. There is a huge demand for students
who have done Nano-Technology Courses in a good number of industries and
laboratories in India and abroad. The scope and application of
nanotechnology is wide ranging and therefore many institutes are now
introducing degree courses in this field at the graduate and post graduate

Benefits: Being an interdisciplinary subject, students with a degree in
nanotechnology can find employment opportunities in a number of fields. Some
of the areas where a nano-technologist can seek employment include the

  • Agriculture
  • Food and Beverage
  • Teaching
  • Genetics
  • Bio-technology
  • Space Research
  • Forensic Science
  • Environment industry
  • Medicine

Courses in Nano-technology

There are quite a number of institutes that offer Nano-Technology Courses in
India and abroad. The M. Tech. in Nanotechnology is a post graduate degree
courses that provides a thorough understanding on the core concepts of
nanostructuring, characterization techniques and fabrication techniques for
nano devices. Other courses include M. Tech. in Health Care Nanotechnology
and Ph.D. in Nanotechnology.

Eligibility: For admissions to M. Tech. (Nanotechnology) course
candidates must have a B. Tech. / B. E. degree in Biotechnology, Chemical
Engineering or Pharmaceutical Technology with a at least of 65% marks.

The institutes in India offering nano- technology courses are:

  • Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore

  • Central Scientific Instruments Organization, Chandigarh
  • Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
  • National Physical Laboratory, Delhi
  • National Chemical Laboratory, Pune
  • Defence Materials Store Research & Development Organization, Kanpur

  • The IITs at Mumbai, Kanpur, Chennai, Guwahati and Delhi
  • Amity Institute of Nano-technology, Noida

Scopes in India: There are very good career prospects for students who
have successfully completed their M.Tech in Nanotechnology from a reputed
institute in India. Some of the industries in India that employ candidates
with a nanotechnology degree include Health Industry research and
consulting- pharmaceutical; agriculture; environment industries; academic
institutes; government and private research institutes and food and beverage
industries among others.

Scopes Abroad: A range of opportunities await candidates who are willing to
go outside India where they can work in the segments of nano -polymer and
nano- medicine and as integration engineers also. Lot of research
opportunities exist in the areas of nano-device, nano-packaging, nano-wires,
nano-tools, nano- biotechnology and nano crystalline materials, nano
photonics and nano porous materials to name a few. Nano Science and
Technology Institute, with its centers at Switzerland, Cambridge and
Massachusetts offer a lot of job opportunities. ASME nano- technology
institute in New York also provides job opportunities to deserving
