Explore the use of nanotechnology to remove environmental pollution and treat polluted water to achieve clean and safer drinking water.
Nanotechnology has revolutionized our life by providing smart phones and high efficiency solar cells. We can also use nanotechnology to remove environmental pollution and treat polluted water to achieve clean and safer drinking water. 3D printing is also changing how we design new devices. In this project we use nanotechnology and/or 3D printing to create innovative devices for water treatment.
Students will be able to submit posters in the Celebration of Academic Excellence in Undergraduate Research. Depending on the research performance, students will also be presenting posters at regional conferences on environmental engineering and/or national conferences including 'Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization Conference'.
