OCC expands into nanotech

Oakland Community College isn’t just teaching the basic college courses anymore. Its new Nanotechnology in Material Sciences Program marks an expansion into the nanotech industry.

The program will be housed at its Auburn Hills campus. Nanotechnology is the study of the control of matter on a molecular and atomic level with wide-ranging applications in medicine, electronics, and energy production. It will be associated with coursework in science areas such as chemistry and the physical sciences

The program gives students a broad range of options, including careers in the aerospace, alternative energy, telecommunications, and life science industries, among many others.
Oakland Community College is offering a number of scholarship opportunities for this program. For information, contact Phil Crockett at (248) 232-4196 or pdcrocke@oaklandcc.edu.
