NANO TECHNOLOGY

Many people ask questions like how can one make a big career which is the next big thing. Swati Salunkhe talks about the next big thing which is very small. i.e. Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is one of the most exciting and fast-moving areas in the field of science and technology. It is something which is small, smaller or smallest. It deals with the study of extremely small things and can be used in the field of Science, Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry, industrial product, medicine, energy and so on. To enter this field one needs to be from Science stream. Nanotechnology is a vast field. it needs a strong based of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology. Few universities do offer B.E. or B.Tech course in Nanotechnology after 12th Science. But majorly Nanotechnology is offered at Masters level only i.e. M.Tech or M.Sc. The field of study can be in anything related to Science like Computer, Physics, Medicine, Agriculture, Mathematics, Electronics, Earth Sciences, Aerospace, and Nuclear Physics. It is a very broad base subject & used in research field which encompasses the entire Human Life, Earth Sciences and future frontiers of mankind. Just having Science as a base will not help. One also needs to have scientific bent of mind, analytical skills, numerical ability, computer literacy and research orientation. One can work in Health industry, Pharmaceutical research, Agriculture, Genetics, Biotechnology, Education, Environment industries, Forensic Sciences, Space Research and Food and Beverage industries. Scope lies in the fields related to Nanomedicine, Bioinformatics, Stem cell development, Pharmaceutical research, Nanotoxicology, Nanopower generating sectors and majorly the scope lies in Research and Development field.
