Nanotechnology is Experimental

 NCA&T State University has been funded at an average rate of $3-5 million per year in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the research in nanoengineering is done in the Center for
Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS). Several Centers and projects are under CAMSS, including the NSF Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST), the DoD Center for Nanoscience, Nanomaterials and Multifunctional Materials (CNN) for Homeland Security, the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), the NSF project on US/Europe Materials Collaboration: Self-Organized Nanostructured Thin Films for Catalysis, the NSF project on Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT), the NSF Major Research Instrumentation for Nanoengineering Research, and the NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) program. CAMSS also facilitates many of the materials research activities of the NASA-National Institute for Aerospace (NIA).

In addition, the Center for Composite Materials Research (CCMR) does research in nano-enhanced composite materials and the Army Center of Excellence for Battlefield Capability Enhancements (Flexible Displays) does research in material characterization and development of novel displays.

 NCA&T was 4th in Nanotechnology Research at North Carolina Universities with $11 Million Dollars between 2000-2005. In 2003 A&T, NATO Sponsor Material Symposium in Ukraine.

A degree program is a program of study in a discipline specialty that leads to a degree in that distinct specialty area at a particular level of instruction.   As a general rule, in order to be considered for degree program status, a course of study should require at least 27 semester hours in the proposed program area at the undergraduate level; at least half the number of hours required for the degree at the master’s level; and at least 21 hours in the proposed program area at the doctoral level.

Reported in the media: UNCG and N.C. A&T are partners in the project. UNCG is offering graduate degrees in nanoscience. A&T will eventually offer degrees in Nanoengineering. [1]
 
"We are currently seeking on behalf of the JSNN Board of Governors approval to establish Ph.D. Program in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering" ,  Alleged Memorandum to University community From chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr.  Date August 14. 2009 RE: State Budget Update
 

 

 
NC A&T Chancellor Martin, UNC System General Administration staff , JSNN Dean Ryan, and Alan Mabe Vice President for Academic Affairs, and members of Greensboro Businesses who were also members of the Board of Governors used their position in the authorization process to implemented the General Administration approved JSNN. NC A&T will offer Nanoengineering degrees and UNC Greensboro will offer Nanoscience degrees;  not UNC Board of Governor May 2007 approved JSNN, to offer (a) joint interdisciplinary Ph.D. degree and (a) joint professional science master's degree.  
 

 
“The building would include the academic departments, laboratory facilities (teaching and research), and centers and institutes of the new School as well as selected centers and institutes currently located at the partner universities. Emphasis added
 
UNC BOG Committee on Budget and Finance, April 2006, approved recommending
1.3 million dollars for planning a Biotechnology Building at NCA&T to full BOG.  Proposed facility would enable NCA&T to support ongoing and expanding research activities in bioengineering, biotechnology, and biomedicine.  NC A&T' biotechnology program is interdisciplinary and will incorporate research activities currently housed in the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and School of Agriculture and Environment Sciences The Total cost of this project is $25 Million dollars.

 
UNC Board of Governors 2007-09 budget Priorities bogus claim the
Greensboro Center for Innovative Development- renamed  Gateway University Research Park- as NCAT/UNC-G Joint Millennial Campus relocated NCA&T College of Engineering, School of Technology, Physical Sciences and Applied Sciences programs and research, off –campus to the bogus Joint Millennial (with UNCG) doubling the cost $25 million vs. $50 million.

 
 
Nanotechnology is Experimental
NCA&T State University has been funded at an average rate of $3-5 million per year in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the research in nanoengineering is done in the Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS). Several Centers and projects are under CAMSS, including the NSF Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST), the DoD Center for Nanoscience, Nanomaterials and Multifunctional Materials (CNN) for Homeland Security, the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), the NSF project on US/Europe Materials Collaboration: Self-Organized Nanostructured Thin Films for Catalysis, the NSF project on Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT), the NSF Major Research Instrumentation for Nanoengineering Research, and the NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) program. CAMSS also facilitates many of the materials research activities of the NASA-National Institute for Aerospace (NIA). In addition, the Center for Composite Materials Research (CCMR) does research in nano-enhanced composite materials and the Army Center of Excellence for Battlefield Capability Enhancements (Flexible Displays) does research in material characterization and development of novel displays.
 

NCA&T was 4th in Nanotechnology Research at North Carolina Universities with $11 Million Dollars between 2000-2005. In 2003 A&T, NATO Sponsor Material Symposium in Ukraine.

 



 
 
UNC Board of Governors January 2007 authorized UNC Charlotte, which has an Engineering School, to offer a Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science.  Offering Nanoscale Science was not a Substantial Change as defined by the SACS for UNC Charlotte.  Nov. 2012 UNC Board of Governors authorized a Master’s in Nanoengineering to Land Grant Institution NC State, which has an Engineering. Offering Nanoengineering was not a Substantial Change as defined by the SACS for NC State.
 
Consistent with other engineering schools in the UNC System offering Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (Material Science) programs  are not  Substantial Changes as defined by the SACS and  consistent with the education, curricular, mission and goals of NC A&T State University.
 

Unlike land grant cross-town historical Black NCA&T with strong programs in engineering offering Nanoscience constituted a Substantive Change as defined by SACS from previous approved circular at historical white women UNCG with strong programs in liberal Arts.   (UNCG) Rebecca Adams to (SACS) Tom Benberg: Sarah Armstrong Subject: Request for interpretation of accuracy of nanoscience message, April 13, 2010:

The bottom line, however, is that we need to submit a full prospectus and need to do so as soon as possible. This request will be for approval to initiate a new off-campus site (South Campus) and to initiate a new degree program (MS in Nanoscience) at that site. Contrary to previous interpretations, both represent substantive changes.. Due to the confusion, they are willing to waive the requirement that we do so 6 months in advance and will usher it though the approval process in a timely way so that we can accept students into UNCG's MS in Nanoscience program next fall.

 
When almost all the occupations which will be affected by nanotechnology will require a BS in engineering with a broad, interdisciplinary approach; and will require an understanding not only of electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, but biology , physics and chemistry as well.

Why is across-town Liberal  Art  UNC Greensboro with programs in music and nursing,  which, does not have an engineering school, requiring
 relevant courses be taken at the School of Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in the School of Engineering”, except for unvarnished racism offering Nanotechnology degrees?
 

Throw in with the devil,  get thrown in with the devil
