UK (University of Kentucky) helps engineering students think small in nanotechnology (Associated Press)

    Some undergraduate students at the University of Kentucky are learning about nanotechnology in a new certificate program.

    Nanotechnology is the manipulation of particles that are as small as one-eighty-thousandth the width of a human hair. It's a field that is already having huge implications in science and engineering.

    "So much research is going on around this field," said Pinar Menguc, a professor of mechanical engineering at UK, "but the concepts required to understand nanotechnology are not taught in the mainstream curriculum." More here
