About the course: 

Nanotechnology is the formation of structures at a molecular level and testing the complex machines at the level of molecules which we measure in nanometers only. In other words ‘Nanotechnology’ also refers to the estimated capability to build items or products from the scratch and making use of various tools and techniques to create and complete, high-quality performance products.

Entry requirements/Qualification:
