IEEEnanoCON-2016 is a three day workshop principally targeting young professionals and college students. IEEEnanoCON-2016 will also serve engineers wishing to retrain into new careers. There will be exposure to a wide range of nanotechnology science and technology topics by established experts in the fields.

Presentations will span nanomaterials and nanodevices, nanophotonics and nanomedicine, nanopolymers and nanosensors along with their applications.

Speakers from Academia and Industry (both entrepreneurs and established enterprises), will review current as well as potential areas of interest in an attempt to spark a drive to get involved in enabling the promise of nanotechnology.

Ample time will be reserved for discussion and interchange with attendees.

IEEEnanoCON-2016’s three days of activities will take place at three venues: Texas Instruments; IBM Almaden; and Stanford University. Free attendance by on-site engineers or professors will be encouraged to maximize networking opportunities.

Student Branch Chapter formed at Kuvempu University

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

An IEEE Nanotechnology Council Student Branch Chapter was approved in September 2012 at Kuvempu University. There are 44 departments at Kuvempu University. This University has a distance learning program with 77 centres all across India. The University is located in the middle of the Bradra Reserve Forest and adjacent to the Bhadra Dam, and is 32 Km away from Shimoga, a district in the state of Karnataka, situated 345 Km away from Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka. The University was started in 1987. It completed 25 years and celebrated its silver jubilee event with a grand ceremony and followed by initiation of the University Science, arts and sports exhibition. It even has its own publishing house called “Prasanga”. The University is recognized by University Grants Commission (UGC).

There is a class of 13 people in the department of Nanoscience and Technology. Our Department runs a 2 year master’s course titled “Master of Technology” in Nanoscience and Technology.
An inaugural meeting on the occasion of having got the approval for the IEEE student branch at Kuvempu University was held on Thursday 27, September. Seated separately in the side is Dr.J Manjanna. He has been an inspiration for all of us. They call him “Japan Manja” for the vast years of research experience has had in Japan during his post-doctoral studies. Seated in the chairs are the heads of various departments within the university. From the left: Prof.Bhojya Naik (member of IEEE) is chairman of Nanotechnology department as well as Industrial chemistry, to his right is Prof. Rajeshwar, department of Biochemistry, followed by Dr.B N Jagadale (member of IEEE) who is the chairman of Electronics Department and to his right is Dr. Neelgundh, from Department of Biochemistry and to his right Prof. Vasanthakumar Pai, from department of Industrial Chemistry followed by Prof Venkatesha, the Dean of the Science studies in Kuvempu University and to is right is Prof. Yadav Bodke, from Industrial Chemistry department.

Student Branch Chapter Formed at UT Tyler

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

An IEEE Nanotechnology Student Branch Chapter was chartered  at The University of Texas at Tyler in the Fall semester of 2011.  This chapter is the first of its kind in Texas and 2nd in the world. Dr. Dominick E. Fazarro, UT Tyler Associate Professor in the Industrial Technology Program and IEEE Senior member, had a great supporting cast-Drs. Evelyn Hirt and Walt Trybula, both IEEE Senior members. The faculty in the  Human Resource Development and Technology were delighted to see an expansion of student interest in nanotechnology.  According to Dr. Fazarro, “There is an interest among students in the Industrial Technology program. Last summer, an online introduction course in nanotechnology which I created had an enrollment of 67 undergraduate and graduate students.”

“We as educators need to introduce nanotechnology on undergraduate level because,  this emerging technology will need trained workers in research, engineering, and management to sustain this new industry,” Fazarro continued. “This newly charted chapter is in response to building a need and being proactive to integrate nanotechnology courses in existing STEM programs”

They are currently building the chapter website.
