NSCC’s Nanotechnology is on the Cutting Edge of a Giant Breakthrough

Nanotechnology, a degree program at North Seattle Community College, may be serving up smaller, faster, more powerful computer chips than ever.  IBM’s most recent breakthrough, using carbon nanotechnology, allowed nanotechnicians to pack more than 10,000 working transistors on a single chip.  Not only are there more transistors in less space, but they are Super Transistors, outperforming their silicon counterparts in every way.  For consumers, this means thinner laptops and smaller phones that do more than anything you’ve owned before. 

For NSCC Nanotechnology students, this means employment in cutting edge fields ranging from smart phones to medicine.  Our one year certificate and two year degree are both based on a collaborative relationship with the University of Washington’s Center for Nanotechnology.
