General Catalog listing

Department Notes: Title: Nanorobotics Course Description: We cannot simply miniaturize a Roomba robot to clean up plaque in our arteries – the laws of the nanoworld are different from what we are used to. Nanorobotics is the discipline that investigates the challenges and opportunities of constructing and programming robots on nanoscale, and it holds the potential to transform science, medicine, and engineering. This emerging discipline is poised to address several emerging society needs, such as disease diagnostics and therapy. Students will learn engineering principles necessary to construct nanorobots. Prerequisites: Basic university level math, physics, chemistry, and biology are desirable but not mandatory.
