I was wondering if anyone knows any well-respected nanotechnology engineering programs throughout North America. I've found one at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, which seems quite new and groundbreaking. However, as the US does, on average, have better universities than Canada, I was wondering if any of you know of any nanotech programs there. I know Stanford, Berkeley, and some others have have material engineering that include some classes in nanotechnology; however, I don't know how much is actually covered.
I'm planning on pursuing an undergraduate education in nanotechnology, then going on to an MBA in graduate school, and starting my own nanotechnology related business. Are we far enough along with research and everything so that I can use only this discipline to design a product, etc, and, along with an MBA, start a business (solely using my experience in that undergraduate program)?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help,
Last year the city of Waterloo was named the most intelligent city in the worldhttp://www.intelligentwaterloo.com/en/
"The school is notable for being the first accredited university in North America to create a Faculty of Mathematics"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Waterloo
Not bad for a University only 51 years old. I'm going there in less than two months (for physics though.)
I might stay in Waterloo for the rest of my life.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center is one.

MY GRANMA IS PRO
BUT NOT CHEAP
this particlar infestation known as "BigFairy" has stirred up elements of the community that would normally take their own harmless course and remain obscure to most members....However, this "bigFairy" virus unwittingly creates a new potentially lethal mixture by combining its nefarious influence with that which would otherwise fall aside to be absorbed into the system without toxic mutations.

Cannot advise you re nanotechnology but, having worked all my life in business, I would advise you to pursue an MBA only if you are planning to work for a large corporation. It is not a very good approach to equipping yourself with the skillset needed to start your own business - I suggest you check the number of MBA´s employed in Lehmans etc !!
