Courses and oppurtunities in nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is one of the top-ranked subjects in the academic and research fields. It offers lot of oppurtunities for higher studies, research and employment. Here is a brief list of courses offered, list of institutes, course content and oppurtunities in the field of nanoscience and technology.
Courses
Available nanotechnology courses are:
M. Tech. degree course (two-year)M.Sc. degree course in nano sciences/ industrial nano science (two-year)
M.Tech. degree course in nano technology (Five-year integrated)
M. Tech. programme in nanotechnology (two-year full-time)
M.Tech. degree in nano medical science which is rare in India.
Institutes offering the courses
The Amity Institute of Nanotechnology in Noida and Jaipur (Integrated M.Tech. course in nanotechnology, M.Sc. degree course in industrial nano science)
Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, M. Tech. degree course in nanotechnology.
Sastra University, Thanjaur, Tamil Nadu (Integrated M.Tech. degree course in medical nanotechnology).

Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi, ME degree course with nanotechnology as an elective subject.
Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University and Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore, have research facilities in nanotechnology leading to Ph.D.
General curriculum
The curriculum deals with topics related to the fundamentals and application of the subject with a focus on emerging areas in nano science and nanotechnology. The course contents include fundamental and applied subjects such as physics of materials, thermodynamics of nano materials and systems, mechanics of finite size elements, micro-scale and nano-scale heat transfer, nano-sized structures, experimental techniques in nanotechnology and micro electro mechanical systems and a variety of elective subjects ranging from computational nanotechnology to composite materials. Laboratory courses dealing with production and applications of nano particles, nano fluids and nano composites will also be offered as part of the curriculum .
Oppurtunities
The specialisation in nanotechnology holds a very high potential for employment in research and development, academics and industries. Those who successfully complete the M. Tech. programme can go for research programmes leading to Ph.D. in nanotechnology and can find jobs as nanotechnologists, specialists or scientists. The areas where a a notechnologist can seek employment include biotechnology, agriculture, food, genetics, space research, medicine and so on. Job opportunities are also available in National Physical Laboratory, Indian Institute of Astrophysicsed and other research labs. Candidates with Ph.D. can also join as faculty members in colleges.
General eligibility
BE/ B. Tech. holders in relevant discipline with at least 60 per cent marks in aggregate along with a valid GATE score for admission to the M. Tech. programme in nanotechnology (http://www.nitc.ac.in/)
M.Sc. degree in physics /chemistry (with mathematics up to at least Bachelor's level) / electronics science / material science / electronic instrumentation with at least 55 per cent marks in aggregate
Bachelor's degree in electrical/ mechanical/ electronics and communication/ computer engineering / instrumentation / computer science with not less than 60 per cent marks
Degree in electrical, mechanical, electronics and communication or computer engineering or M.Sc. degree course in biotechnology, computer science, physics, chemistry, electronic science, material science, electronic instrumentation
B.Tech. or B.Sc. degree in physics, chemistry, biotechnology and electronics (http://www.amity.edu/).
