|Field of Study:||Computer Engineering, Other
|Description:||This program gives you the opportunity to focus on the emerging field of nanotechnology, giving you an introduction to the processes involved in the fabrication of nanoscale integrated circuits and in designing the tools necessary for the mass production of nanoscale systems. The University of Alberta is a leader in nanotechnology and nano-scale engineering. We are home to the NanoFAB Micromachining and Nanofabrication Facility, the Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility, and the Nanotechnology Research Centre, the latter two being part of the campus-based National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT).
This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate! Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.

|Cost per year:*||
This estimate is based on one year of full-time study, and represents only the tuition cost.
|Additional Admission Requirements:||
This program does not allow admission directly from high school. Preprofessional Study Time: 1 year. All students in the Qualifying Year in the Faculty of Engineering follow a common curriculum in their first year. At the end of the first year, students choose among the various specialized Engineering programs offered and between the traditional and cooperative education streams. Students with transferable post-secondary coursework taken outside of the Faculty of Engineering are considered for admission based on GPA and relevant transfer credit.
