UCF’s board of trustees on March 27 approved a new nanocscience technology master’s degree at the school. Nanoscience is expected to be a $1.2 trillion industry by 2020, and the new degree has an emphasis on entrepreneurship.

Seal said the eventual plan is to also have a doctorate degree in nanoscience technology.
