Nanoscience at Hampton University

Welcome to NanoHU!

NanoHU is a newly developed program at Hampton University that affords students to engage in cutting-edge opportunities associated with nanoscience.  NanoHU is a cooperative effort between the departments of Biological Sciences, Computer Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics, Marine & Environmental Science, and Physics at Hampton University.  The interdisciplinary  program  provides all of Hampton University’s undergraduate students with the opportunity to earn a minor in nanoscience as they prepare  to meet the nation’s call for more  inventive scientists and versatile engineers.

Nanoscience has captured the attention of almost all areas of science and engineering, with implications in business, national security, international relations and ethics. The NanoHU program is timely as it provides a formal forum for HU to support its faculty and prepare its students to engage in this enormous, yet relevant enterprise. It is also compatible with the University’s mission and strategic plan of achieving research university status. In achieving its mission, Hampton University strives to offer exemplary programs and opportunities which enable students, faculty and staff to grow, develop and contribute to the workforce and society in a productive and useful manner.
