The National Science Foundation (NSF) estimates that the world will require 2 million trained nanotechnologists by 2015.  Currently, there are only 20,000 nanotechnologists worldwide, making the need for career training immediate.

Enter NanoProfessor a new program focused on educating students in the emerging field of nanoscience and preparing them for future careers in nanotechnology.  The program, which just launched at Dakota County Technical College in Minnesota, caters to biology, chemistry and physics students by providing a hands-on nanoscience education in a classroom setting.  

The NanoProfessor Program, including state-of-the-art equipment, proprietary curriculum and scholarships, can be implemented immediately at universities, colleges and high schools nationwide.  This program also provides community colleges an opportunity to take advantage of funding available through President Obama's recently announced American Graduation Initiative, to create innovative programs for their students, while taking a proactive approach in training the workforce of the future.

Black Technology

A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.


Black Entrepreneurs

Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
