Nanotechnology is the nexus of sciences; its umbrella covers a huge range of disciplines. The possible applications of this technology are immense. Realizing the enormous potential of Nano science and nanotechnology to solve the issues of energy, agriculture, water, health, environment and homeland security, countries all over the world have been making substantial investment for promoting this area. In the Nano Mission of SCME it is planned to become center of excellence, and promote institution-industry linked projects through increased public private partnerships. As part of the Nano Mission our main goal is to educate and train students in Nanotechnology, teach them skills necessary to become the future leaders in this rapidly emerging industrial revolution, support research and development projects, strengthening of characterization and infrastructural facilities, joint projects between educational institutions and industry for application development etc.
