Cartago university starts nanotechnology program

The Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica announced a new academic option Wednesday. Students now can choose nanotechnology.

The Cartago-based public university becomes the first in Central America to offer this program. The training is based on engineering with heavy mathematics. There also is a segment on intellectual property so that nano discoveries and creations can be patented.

The university has invested $1 million in equipment and infrastructure for the program, it said. The program is being supported by a number of well-known industrial firms, mostly international.
