The nanotechnology group investigates the implication of manufacturing and tailoring of nanomaterials to environmental ecosystems as well as the development of nanodevices and nanostructured materials for environmental remediation, energy production, and sustainable manufacturing. Students can build depth into their educational experiences by adding elective courses from other departments within the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering including the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences (EES).
Our faculty’s research is recognized internationally for its prominence and impact in understanding manufacturing nanomaterials and nanodevices. The research is tailored for application in environmental and human health research, environmental fate and transport of nanomaterials, and environmental implications of nanomaterials.
The federal, state, and industrial research funding provides support for undergraduate research as well as graduate fellowships and assistantships with full tuition waiver and competitive stipends. Research trains students to become professionals in academic institutions, government agencies, non-government organizations, or industry consulting.
