Careers in Nano Technology

Nano is a term used for small things. TATA motors gave the name Nano to their car as it is small. It is a special branch of science that combines physics, chemistry, math, biology, engineering and technology. Nanotechnology has great exciting applications in medical science, bioscience, environment, cosmetics, electronics, security and many other fields. Nanotechnology has two major areas i.e. nanoscale technology and molecular manufacturing. The nanoscale technology teaches small structures and can be used for manufacturing better medicines, stronger materials, and speedier computers. Molecular manufacturing is an effort to build chemical and mechanical manufacturing systems that join molecules together.
Nanotechnology is the technology of future and it will bring the unseen products in future. Nanotechnology has applications in the field of textile, education, medicine, electronic devices, gadgets, bio-technological applications, auto-mobile, genetic engineering, , ophthalmology related instruments, quality control, forensics, sports and fitness equipments, defense, space and robotics, medical apparatus, polymer, chemistry, aeronautics, agriculture, environmental domains and business applications.
