Description: 

UC-Santa Barbara is one of 10 universities in the University of California (UC) system. The university is home to several centers, labs and programs related to nanotechnology research and education including the California NanoSystems Institute (in partnership with UCLA), the Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and the UCSB Nanofabrication Facility.

In 2007, an ATE proposal was submitted to NSF to establish an A.A. Certification in Nanoscience Technology. This was designed to be a two-track, two-year nanoscience/technology educational program for community college students. The first track would offer a certification in nanotechnology for students who wanted to enter the workforce upon completion, and the second track would offer preparation for students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution and continue in upper division studies in nanoscience/technology. The University of Santa Barbara along with three community colleges (College of the Canyons, Ventura College and Santa Barbara City College) were involved in the proposal. The project is listed as pending NSF review and funding.
