Nanosystems Engineering

A Day in the Life

A Nanosystems Engineer is a research and inventor on the cutting edge of science. They work with nanomaterials, which are materials that are roughly 1/100,000 of the width of a single stand of human hair. Most of their time is spent analyzing microscopic interactions between various materials and developing 3D computer simulations based on the observed properties of materials. They also synthesis and characterize a range of new materials and identify new uses for nanotechnologies that already exist.
