A moratorium was approved in Fall 2017. No new students are being admitted.

According to the National Nano Initiative, the demand for technicians and research scientists in nanotechnology-based industries is anticipated to grow significantly as nanotechnology-enabled products and processes mature. Wayne State University received a Nanoengineering Undergraduate Education (NUE) grant from the National Science Foundation to establish the Nanoengineering Undergraduate Certificate Program. The program will provide students with specialized training in nanotechnology and nanomedicine.

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High Impact Practices of Student Success: team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service.
