The Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica will be graduating its first class in nanotechnology today, the university said Tuesday. The academic option is the only one in Central America, the school said.
Greeting the graduates will be President Laura Chinchilla, who is reported to see the career field as a way to increase the country’s competitivity. The term refers to manipulations of matter at the atomic or molecular level and building very tiny devices. The meeting with the president will be at 5 p.m. in Casa Presidencial.
