Nanomaterials technology (NMT) major aims at providing prospective professional researchers with higher education that can cultivate specialized backgrounds and R&D competences required to formulate significant problems in engineering applications of nanomaterials and to explore successfully the solutions thereof based on understanding of nonlinear, unusual or new properties of materials with respect to their nano-scale structures. In order to achieve this goal, NMT major offers a course curriculum to teach basic knowledge that can be used for forming and characterizing various nano-structured materials such as quantum dots, nano wires, nano films and nano particles and for analyzing their structure-property relations. More importantly, NMT major provides strong laboratory-based education that allows students opportunities to acquire, to exploit and even to create knowledge from their own spontaneous and direct experiences by participation in research projects of different kinds such as; basic researches pursuing fundamental understanding of the properties of nanostructure materials, advanced researches developing stand-alone NT technologies or fusion technologies with IT (information processing, storage, display, sensing and so on), ET (energy conversion, storage, environmental technology ) or BT (bio technology). The faculty of NMT major comprises researchers of established or promising careers, conducting R&D for creative original technologies or core technologies of nanomaterials in government subsidized research institutes such as KIST (Korea Institute of Science and Technology), KRICT (Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology), and KRISS (Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science).
