Indian organization launches nanotechnology training programs
(Nanowerk News) Nano Science and Technology Consortium (NSTC), India announces the Nanotechnology Training (Certification) Programs for different fields of Science & Technology. With the availability of these kind of training programs in India, NSTC is looking forward to sensitize students, professionals and industries with requisite knowledge of Nanotechnology.
The applications of Nanotechnology are now evident in almost each and every field of Science & Technology. NSTC has several domain specific programs like:
Nanotechnology Sensitization Program (6 Months): Nanotechnology Sensitization Program is the first of its kind in India. It focuses on providing entry level information for all those who are interested in this exciting & rapidly expanding field of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology. This program will lead to higher levels of knowledge base which in turn is quite useful for career development and new job opportunities.
Introductory Program in Nanotechnology (3 Months): This explains the basic perception & exploration of this emerging field. It tops this with applications of technology in various sectors to aware the implementations of Nanotechnology at various levels. It is ideal for those who want to explore science and are curious about the demand of Nanotechnology in daily life.
Integrated Program in Nanotechnology (9 Months): Integrated Program in Nanotechnology explains the integration of physics, biology and chemistry at the nanometer scale and tops this with applications of technology and engineering to ensure know-how of practical implementations of Nanotechnology at various levels.
Industry Program in Nanotechnology (6 Months): The industry level program is an advanced program meant to enhance the knowledge base of participants who have a very basic knowledge of Nanotechnology. It equips the participant to be able to understand the practical and business aspects of various Nanotechnology techniques and materials from the point of view of the industry.
Nanoelectronics & Its Industrial Applications (6 Months): For the budding engineers and professionals it is very important to know and understand the latest that when they join the industry they are capable of giving back to the industry what they have learned and gained during their academic pursuits.
Bionanotechnology & Its medical Applications (6 Months): The program aims to give a participant a thorough grasp of this amazing new application of Nanotechnology. It equips the participant to explore further and discover the power of the nano-level in offering relief to humankind from so-called incurable maladies. While the subject matter is covered in great depth, a lot of attention is paid to ensure that the participant understands the practical applications of the study material in the domain of Nano-scale Biotechnology.
Nanopharmaceuticals & Its Industrial Applications (6 Months): Nanopharmaceuticals offer the ability to detect diseases at much earlier stages and the diagnostic applications could build upon conventional procedures using nanoparticles. Nanopharmaceuticals represent an emerging field where the sizes of the drug particle or a therapeutic delivery system work at the nanoscale.
Nanotechnology Teachers' Training Program (3/6 Months): Nanotechnology Teacher's Training Program explains the integration of physics; biology and chemistry at the nanometer scale, and tops this with applications of Nanotechnology and engineering to ensure know-how of practical implementations of Nanotechnology at various levels.
NSTC is a primary player in the upcoming field of Nanotechnology. NSTC functions as a unique body in India of Nanotechnology Certification provider, and also provides services like Technology Transfer, Consultancy & Outsourcing.
Nano Science and Technology Consortium is a uniquely positioned body that acts as a Nanotechnology platform. NSTC brings together various stakeholders in the Nanotechnology arena and binds them together, enabling them to reach their final destinations with ease. For example, we bring together entrepreneurs and Nanotechnology researchers, so that entrepreneurs can set up profitable businesses, and researchers can get the satisfaction of watching their research work turn into a marketable product. We bring together students and the academia, so that students can gain knowledge in nanotechnology, and the academia can impart it.
NSTC has been performing this role to perfection since the past six years, and has been expanding its domain to include researchers, government bodies, corporate houses, students, businessmen and technocrats, to help them benefit mutually from each other.
