2001 amended University Master Plan called for developing
75 -acres of its farmland at 2900 East Lee Street as a University
Millennial Campus, to create new opportunities in the private and
academic arenas between the University's, engineering, technology
and agricultural research and its students - which didn’t include

purpose of a Millennial Campus is to bring together business,
industry, and academia like the Centennial Campus at NCSU and the
Horace Williams Campus at UNC-CH.

computational science, and says
N. Radhakrishnan, former for research and
economic development at N.C. A&T. The school
also has significant strengths in other areas,
including biotechnology, energy and the
sciences and technology, logistics

A&T, which develop partnerships with
private and corporate sponsors, educational
institutions, and government agencies. This
includes two US Army Centers of Excellence that
are working on projects to enhance the
capabilities of soldiers on the battlefield.
“It [JSNN] will be one of the most stimulating opportunities in the
history of the area and will serve as
a national model
collaboration between two institutions, one a historical black
institution and the other a historical white female institution.”
“The building would include the academic departments, laboratory
facilities (teaching and research), and centers and institutes of
the new School as well as selected centers and institutes currently
located at the partner universities.

Nanoscience and Nanoengineering is assigned to
Nanotechnology by NCES CIP 15.1601 as Engineering
Technologies and Engineering-Related Fields
Educational and Skills Requirements
Nanotechnology is not an industry. Rather, nanotechnology
refers to a set of platform technologies that involve the
assembly or manipulation of objects at a very small scale.
Almost all of the occupations which will be affected by
nanotechnology will require a BS in engineering with a
broad, interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach.
Nanotechnology will require an understanding not only of
electrical, mechanical and civil engineering but biology,
physics, and chemistry as well.
UNC-G, the former Historical white Woman’s College of
the UNC system, has a strong tradition in the Liberal
Arts and Nursing.
To offer Nanoscience degrees UNCG requires
access to NCA&T academic programs and research:
“Although the degree is in Nanoscience (does not
include Nanoengineering), students will be given the
opportunity to take relevant courses at the School of
Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be
able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in
the School of Engineering”.
“A Promise for the Future By some accounts,
nanotechnology is destined to replace much of today's
technology. Gateway University Research Park expects to
be at the forefront of these new technologies with the
creation of a new institution, The Joint School
for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN).”
