Career Outlook

Photo of a TSTC student working in the Nanotechnology lab.According to the National Nanotechnology Initiative, federal funding for nanotechnology in the U.S. has increased to nearly $1.5 billion for the 2009 fiscal year. Added to that are estimates indicating private industry is investing at least as much, which suggests the possibility for increased job opportunities. 

On top of this, the National Science Foundation, on consultation with a wide array of experts, projects that the global market for non-products could reach $1 trillion by 2015, creating extensive job opportunities for graduates skilled in the field. 

If you want to be a part of this emerging field full of  seemingly endless possibilities, check out Texas State Technical College’s Nanotechnology program.
