The University of Kentucky (Lexington) offers an inter-disciplinary Nano-Scale Engineering Certificate Program (NECP). The certificate program for undergraduates, begun in 2004, is designed to foster a new wave of nano-focused interdisciplinary programs.

The focus of NECP is nanoscale fabrication.

Students who enroll in UK's NECP will be required to take a total of six courses on nanotechnology and attend to two semester-long seminar courses. See the attached Course Table for all the courses to be offered.

Three of the required courses will be lecture courses addressing both theoretical and fabrication fundamentals as related to nano-scale processes. Additionally, there are three more courses that can be taken as technical electives. Finally, there are two different lab courses offered, one of which needs to be taken by every student in the programas required courses. All the NECP courses are offered by the Departments of Mechanical Engineering (ME), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and Chemical and Materials Engineering (CME), and can be accepted as Technical Electives in students' home Departments.

Nano-Scale Engineering Certificate Program details are available.
