Penn State University’s Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) project brings together a wide range of partners that are either engaged in … or planning to become engaged in associate degree-level micro- and nanotechnology education. The transition of the Penn State Regional model to a national center aims to help support, coordinate, and integrate similar efforts in other sections of the country. NACFAM is working with Penn State’s NACK national center to establish an accredited skill standards program for the nanotechnology technician graduates.
