Why small is beautiful in Electrical Engineering
and Computer Science

Nanoscale technology exploits effects that emerge as materials and devices shrink. EECS lays the foundations for this field, starting with introductory courses, where the concept of a "bit" (the smallest unit of information) and the utility of a transistor (the elemental nano-electronic device) are explained, and expands from there.

EECS has been researching and teaching nanotechnology for decades, starting well before the field attracted its recent attention, with a rich and complex curriculum. This website clarifies the nanoEECS options for students; it should be the first stop in finding courses and research in nanoEECS.
