Careers in Nanotechnology

There is a broad range of industries interested in hiring Capstone graduates—from chemical to pharmaceutical to materials. These industries are increasingly relying upon nanofabrication technology.

The Federal Government has stated that nanotechnology "is likely to change the way almost everything—from vaccines to computers to automobile tires to objects not yet imaginable—is designed and made."

Work Environment

Graduates of the Capstone Semester may be involved in fabricating and characterizing nano- and micro-scale structures in research and development or manufacturing environments, in sales, or in product support. They are found anywhere nanotechnology is used to make consumer, industrial, and military products.

Nanotechnology companies are high-tech leaders. They offer dynamic and stimulating work places and operate with cleanroom environments that are typically 10,000 times cleaner than a hospital operating room.


Graduates are receiving salary offers up to $35,000 to $55,000 per year with either the NMT two-year degree or the NMT certificate. Graduates of the baccalaureate degree can expect salary offers up to $65,000. Students who choose to continue their education may reach the $100,000 range.

Career Placement

The Pennsylvania NMT Partnership works closely with employers to place graduates. Graduates have been hired by nearly one hundred different companies across Pennsylvania and in other states.
