Description:Nanotechnology Engineering applies ideas from chemistry, quantum physics, biology, and electronics to build objects through manipulations at the atomic or molecular level. As a nanotechnology engineer, you'll build structures ranging from one to one hundred nanometers (billionths of a metre). You'll use mathematics, science, and engineering to model, design, and make structures for sensors, electronics, biosystems, or advanced materials.

After you graduate, you'll be able to apply your knowledge to create advanced materials that can be used in new ways. For example, you could reduce the weight of materials to increase efficiency, find new ways to test for environmental pollutants, or work in the medical field using miniature devices that can act at the molecular level. Waterloo is the only university in Canada to offer a full degree in Nanotechnology Engineering. The University's $160-million Quantum-Nano Centre houses specialized labs for you to get hands-on, practical experience.
