Seminar in Nano-engineered Systems

The NanoES seminar series features speakers from the nanotechnology community at UW and beyond. The seminar sessions alternate between single lectures presented by a faculty member on a topic in their specialty area, and two short research updates from students or postdocs. Attendees of the seminar will learn about the diverse topics within the field of nanotechnology and become familiar with colleagues working in this field.

Credit is available for UW students — register for MolEng 599.

We also host a quarterly Distinguished Practitioner in Nano-engineered Systems seminar as part of the Molecular Engineering & Science’s seminar series. Past seminars are listed below.
