A Big Career Working with the Very Small

A Big Career Working with the Very Small

To start thinking big about your future career, you need to start thinking about the very small. Nanotechnology is a cutting-edge field where you work with the smallest pieces of matter (atoms and molecules) on the nano-scale to create useful materials and devices that have new and innovative properties.  Nanotechnologists use nanotechnology to make breakthrough products that may help in the environmental, energy, medical and even cultural sectors. Learn about Nano Careers! Imagine working with materials that cannot be seen by the naked eye! In the future, nanotechnology will be used in various ways to enhance human life. Globally, we can use nano research to find new ways to increase energy production and increase the efficiency of our machines, so that they will use fewer natural resources to power them. Energy not your thing? Maybe you have a passion for Arts and Culture. Nanomaterials are being used in textiles to increase durability of clothing and to create new ways to monitor a person’s health! We can also use nanoscience to create new and improved building materials to create stronger structures. If medicine is your calling, imagine being able to use nano robots to target sick cells and deliver medicine to affected areas in a body. With a career in nanoscience, the possibilities are endless!   Hard Facts What exactly is Nanotechnology? – Alberta Innovates Technology  Futures (AITF)Definition “Nanotechnology is the design, characterization, production and application of very small structures to exploit their unique physical, chemical and biological properties. Size-dependent properties of nanomaterials, usually in the 1- to 100-nanometer range, include electronic, photonic, magnetic, rheological, structural and mechanical effects.”   Career...
