Education and Training Requirements

High School

High school classes in science (biology, chemistry, and physics) and mathematics (geometry, trigonometry, and calculus) are good preparation for a career in nanotechnology. Most nanotechnicians manage data and keep records so it’s helpful to take computer science courses and learn how to use databases and word-processing programs. Shop classes can develop your technical skills and hand-eye coordination. Other recommended courses include English, speech, and typing.
