Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology

Nanofabrication manufacturing involves making devices at the smallest dimensions. The technologies are used for a wide variety of applications, including miniature sensor arrays for biology and medicine, miniature valves, turbines for fluidics, flat panel displays for computers, and integrated circuits.

NCC's Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology degree is a cooperative program between Northampton Community College and Pennsylvania State University. Your first three semesters at NCC cover a broad range of electronics and scientific material, as well as the required General Education courses, which help round out your education, preparing you to communicate in the workplace and setting the stage for potential career growth.

The fourth semester is a capstone experience at Penn State's University Park campus, taught by Penn State faculty using state-of-the-art equipment. You will work in a clean room environment and gain experience in operating and troubleshooting nanofabrication processing equipment.
