Greensboro City's Greensboro Connections 2025 Comprehensive Plan was adopted May 2003.  A key principle of the Comprehensive Plan is to promote economic development in historically under-served parts of the City such as East Greensboro. Properties in these areas should receive priority consideration as the City designates and promotes land for economic development. The NCA&TSU Farm site is one such candidate.  7D.3 Promote economic development through public/private partnerships to include government, economic development agencies, educational and health care institutions, and businesses. Build on existing partnerships and initiatives in this effort. Examples include:
 

University-related research and development opportunities with UNCG and NCA&TSU (building on the example of the Nussbaum Center incubator facility)[ One of their primary tasks will be keeping tabs on research at the two universities, in areas such as engineering and sciences, that might have commercial uses. They will look for existing companies that could benefit from that research and explore the potential of using it to create start-up businesses.][1]

Examining Nanoscience discipline file at www.northcarolina.edu :

 

1.      The discipline  file contained no UNCG Notification to plan a master’s in Nanoscience,

2.      The discipline file contained an unsigned “Revised UNCG Request to Establish a Master’s in Nanoscience,

3.      The discipline file contained no UNCG Request to plan a PhD in Nanoscience

4.      The discipline file contained no UNCG Request to Established a PhD in Nanoscience

Responding to a Public records request to Dr. David H. Perrin UNCG Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor,1/7/11, for a copy of an UNCG chancellor signed request to establish stand alone Masters and PhD Nanoscience degrees at UNCG,  Counsel Steve Serck responded  "In response to your request of 1/7/11, no such documents as you described exists." 
 
Unambiguous lack of UNCG Chancellor Dr. Linda Brady signed Proposals requesting  to establish Nanoscience Professional Master of Science in Nanoscience and Ph.D. Nanoscience clearly demonstrated UNCG had not expressed intentions to establish the degrees, they had not been approved by the faculty and administration, were not pursuant UNC Policies 400.1.1,1[G]and 400.1.1.5[G].  Nor did  UNCG degrees followed the ordinary approval process.
 
 

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.

Notwithstanding  the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES), categorized Nanoscience as CIP 15.1601 Engineering Technologies and Engineering-Related Fields.  UNC General Administration applied  CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering . Note UNC-G has a School of  Arts and Science.
 
Professional Master of Science in Nanoscience
The 33-hour, non-thesis MS in Nanoscience follows the Professional Master of Science degree model, featuring course work in Nanoscience and business and an internship to provide practical experience.
 

UNC General Administration applied 
CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering determined UNC at Greensboro offered only a Master in Chemistry on the graduate level in the category of Physical Science.
 
Unambiguous a degree in Chemistry is not a degree in Nanoscience. UNC Greensboro academic inventory was substantially below the general rule of at least half the number of hours required  for discipline  [Nanoscience] degree at the master’s level.
 
Doctor of Philosophy in Nanoscience
The PhD in Nanoscience requires a minimum of 60 hours and is designed to prepare students to take positions in industrial, governmental, or academic research settings by providing a solid background in Nanoscience theory and experimental techniques through course work and dissertation research.
 
 
”The addition of a doctoral program is not an easy or simple extension of the master’s program. Unlike most master’s programs, a doctoral program is research-based. While doctoral program requirements routinely include additional course work, the central program requirement is the dissertation. The topic for the dissertation normally derives from discussion with faculty who are engaged in research and therefore knowledgeable about the “frontier of knowledge” in the discipline. For a faculty member to then properly guide and assist the student’s dissertation research, that faculty member must be an active researcher. Hence, the implementation of a doctoral program must be preceded by the assembling of faculty who are conducting publishable research in that discipline.

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

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 and UNCG next to last with $44,999 between 2000-2005.

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.

 
 
Unambiguous UNC Policy on Academic Program Planning conclusion if it had been implemented would indicate :

(1) number, location, and mode of delivery of existing programs,

 (2) the relation of the program to the distinctiveness of the campus and the mission of the campus,

(3) the demand for the program in the locality, region, or State as a whole,

(4) whether the program would create unnecessary duplication,

(5) employment opportunities for program graduates,

(6) faculty quality and number for offering the program,

(7) the availability of campus resources (library, space, labs, equipment, external funding, and the like) to support the program,

(8) the number and quality of lower-level and cognate programs for supporting the new program,

(9) impact of program decision on access and affordability,

(10) the expected quality of the proposed degree program,

over whiningly  indicated Nanoscience and Nanoengineering degrees be established at  HBCU (The) North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State university "not" University of North Carolina Greensboro.
