DCTC receives grant to create regional center
Dakota County Technical College received a $3 million grant to develop the Midwest Center for Nanotechnology Education from the National Science Foundation. The college learned it had received the grant early in September.
The center, which also will be called Nano-Link, will create qualified graduates to work in nanoscale science and technology.
"The things that will happen are going to be phenomenal," said Deb Newberry, director of DCTC's Nanoscience Technology program.
