UCF Nanotech Degree Expected to Spin Out Companies


The new nanotechnology master’s degree offered by the University of Central Florida will have a “huge economic impact” on Central Florida, said Sudipta Seal, the director of the Nanoscience Technology Center and the Advanced Materials Processing & Analysis Center at UCF.

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.
