  • “Expertise in nanotechnology may become a prerequisite for many scientists and engineers that support a wide variety of industries, nano expertise among the North Carolina science and engineering workforce may soon become a competitive advantage issue for the state;

  • The global market for nanotechnology products and services is predicted to increase by 18-28 percent annually for the next several years (BCC Research, Inc.) and is expected to reach $2.6 trillion by 2014 (Lux Research), showing the potential for strong growth in this sector of the economy;

"It  is predicted that nano scale science will change the nature of almost every human-made product this century. This field has great potential applications in materials, medicine, electronics, optics, data storage, advanced manufacturing, environment, energy, and national security. Some specific applications include: lightweight new materials with greatly improved strength and wear characteristics; ultra dense computer memory; better drug design and better drug and gene delivery; sensing applications for agricultural, biological, chemical and homeland security applications; improved catalysts for the chemical and automotive industries; new materials to improve fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions; and improved batteries and energy efficient processes for energy technologies. Nanoscale materials already find use in numerous pharmaceutical, catalytic, electronic, magnetic, optoelectronic, biomedical, cosmetic and energy applications".
   

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. UNC at Greensboro 10th among the 11 institutions conducted $45,000 dollars of Nanotechnology research between 2000 thru 2005. In 2003 A&T, NATO Sponsor Material Symposium in Ukraine.

   
   
N.C. A&T Awarded NSF Engineering Research Center
Shena Crittendon,
Greensboro – North Carolina A&T State University has been awarded a grant for an Engineering Research Center (ERC) from the National Science Foundation (NSF).  Engineering Research Center grants represent major investments by NSF in partnership with industry to transform engineering research and education.  The centers aim to produce innovative technologies and engineering graduates to significantly enhance the competitiveness of the U.S. economy.  Award funding has been approved at $18 million for the initial five years, with a potential duration of 10 years.

"With the millions of federal dollars flowing to this center (NSF ERC), what [ we] can do to increase the economic opportunities in Guilford County, the Triad and in the state of  North Carolina is truly phenomenal," said Erskine Bowles , president of the UNC system. [A&T lands prized NSF center][31].
 
The NSF ERC for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials at A&T will conduct research in the areas of biomedical engineering and nano-bio applications and is in partnership with the Universities of Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. It also has a global technical partner in Germany’s Hannover School of Medicine and a global cultural and outreach partner in the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India. California State University at Los Angeles will serve as an outreach partner in the USA.  The ERC has partnerships with pre-college institutions in North Carolina to involve teachers and students in engineering; it has partnerships with a broad range of North Carolina organizations devoted to entrepreneurship and small business development.

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..

Prior to 1969 the University of  North Carolina consisted of three  majority serving white post secondary institutions,  UNC at Chapel Hill, NC State University, and UNC at Greensboro (women college).   In  1969 the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) began investigating the desegregation progress of ten states, including North Carolina, that had historically segregated systems of public higher education. In February 1970 the University of North Carolina (System) received notice of its non-compliance with Title VI from HEW's Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The university was found to be maintaining a racially identifiable system of public higher education. http://www.lib.unc.edu/mss/uars/ead/40015.html#  

 "There are 15 or more members on the Board of Governors from UNC-Chapel Hill and none from North Carolina A&T or other HBCUs within the system, clearly equality and respect has not been shown to A&T by the system."  NCA&T Board of Trustee member said, as published in BOT Meeting Minutes 04-18-07.

In 1971 NC Legislature created  UNC Board of Governors to over see a consolidated University of North Carolina, which may have organized non-compliance by placing the people who may have been the source of non-compliance in the same room and given  control - old dogs don't learn new tricks.
