The nanoHUB-U Initiative, powered by nanoHUB at Purdue University, aims to bring the new insights and approaches being developed in nanoscience into the traditional fields of engineering and applied science, and to do this in a way that is broadly accessible to students without a long string of prerequisites.
The Workshop "Educating the Nanotechnology Workforce: What is Nano and Where are the Jobs?", offered on November 20th, 2013, at the University of Puerto Rico at Humacao, had the participation of members of Community and Technical Colleges around the island, and several University of Puerto Rico Campuses. This professional development activity, hosted by the Department of Physics and Electronics, had 44 participants including – faculty, technicians, and students, as well as international participants from Brazil, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.
