Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies and Design

An Introduction for Engineers and Architects

How could nanotechnology not perk the interest of any designer, engineer or architect? Exploring the intriguing new approaches to design that nanotechnologies offer, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies and Design is set against the sometimes fantastic sounding potential of this technology. Nanotechnology offers product engineers, designers, architects and consumers a vastly enhanced palette of materials and properties, ranging from the profound to the superficial. It is for engineering and design students and professionals who need to understand enough about the subject to apply it with real meaning to their own work.

Design and product engineering students and professionals; Junior level students of materials science; Mechanical engineers, students and professionals; Architects and students of architectural sciences
