Grant will fund regional nanotech program
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 in early September it had received the grant.
The center, which will also 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.
