Garden City University provides the Bachelor of Science Course in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the demanding field of science and technology. The course is designed to provide the skills and knowledge to the student about the field of nanotechnology applications in the modern lifestyle and teach students how nanotechnology can shape the tomorrow and solve the modern-day problems by making the changes at the molecular and sub-molecular level. In-depth theoretical and practical knowledge is provided to the student and the practical and visualization skills are enhanced. Students are encouraged to come up with the new ideas and research the feasibility and practicality of the new ideas. The course is taught by expertise in the field of nanotechnology and all the facilities, equipment and support required by the students is made available to them. The duration of the course is 3 years and to be eligible to enroll in this course a student must have cleared the intermediate (10+2) with science subjects that are physics, chemistry, mathematics, or biology or both. The course increases the knowledge of students about nanotechnology. Nanotechnology deals with structures sized between one to a hundred Nano meters in at least one dimension and involves developing materials or devices possessing at least one dimension within that size. Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to investigating whether we can directly control matter on the atomic scale.


The nanotechnology has a diverging impact on many aspects of our daily lives, the opportunities in this career field are growing rapidly. There are numerous job sectors in which you can be employed such as medicine, therapeutics, Environmental observing, control, Food science including quality control and packaging, Forensics, federal lab research, Military and national security, Energy capture and storage, Electronic industries, Material science including textiles, polymers, packaging, among others, Auto and aerospace industries, Sporting goods, Biotechnology, Medical fields and pharmaceutical and many more areas.

Course Highlights

This course introduces nanoscience and nanotechnology. Structure – properties, functions and applications are identified as the core concepts of nanoscience. The corresponding synthesis and processing steps, and the performance of such materials under environmental constraints, constitute the core of nanotechnology. Nanoscience is presented as the convergence of applied physics, applied chemistry, and biology focusing on phenomena and opportunities to fabricate at the nanometer scale where the energy scales of a variety of processes conflate. As nanotech is the epitome of interdisciplinarity, the course attempts to build up student’s communication skills and attempts to get them into the habit of life-long learning.

The emergence of any new technology often raises the challenge of balancing risks and benefits, and in this regard nanotechnology is no exception. Class subject matter and format will examine the implications of nanotechnology within a socioeconomic-environmental context. Nanotechnology has broad social, ethical and legal implications ranging from environmental remediation and/or contamination to social justice and equity applications in developing countries, to biomedical treatments and interventions, to intellectual property dilemmas. Students gain familiarity with these applications as well as skills in analyzing and balancing risks and benefits.

The course exposes students to expert views from a variety of perspectives and will help students develop critical analysis and reasoning skills working both individually and collaboratively. Emphasis is placed on integrating technological literacy with critical inquiry and problem solving in social and ethical context
