NaNSA – UW Nanotechnology Student Association

April 12, 2012

The UW Nanotechnology Student Association (NaNSA) fosters interdisciplinary research in nanotechnology, provides a forum for exchange of ideas between students from different disciplines, and promotes nanotechnology at the university level. There’s no specific degree requirements, and it is open to graduate and undergraduate students interested in Nanotechnology.

Expanding further the group has adopted to social media for faster interaction with accounts on Facebook and Twitter. On these pages you’ll find what the group is currently doing, surrounding news on nanotechnology, and conversation. The public access to these pages deliberately provides a larger and long term service for UW students. Got news, job information, or a question related to nanotechnology? NaNSA is now a welcoming online forum for Nanotechnology.


NaNSA has planned speakers from industry and academia at their upcoming meetings focusing on industry research and career guidance. These talks follow immediately after research talks in the Nanotechnology Seminar Series held in Bagley 260 every other Tuesday, making for a great afternoon of learning. On days that outside speakers aren’t arranged NaNSA members will speak on their research creating further interdisciplinary learning and presentation practice. Please be certain to mark your calendars and follow the NaNSA Events as they are posted on Facebook!
