  • 2. Overview• Nanotechnology program• Energy program (proposed)• Articulation paths (SLO/PLO)• Joint research (NASA etc.)• Questions and thoughts?
  • 3. Nanotechnology• Four course ‘core’ program• NANO50/51 – Applications of Nanotechnology (Fall, Winter)• NANO52 – Nanostructures and Nanomaterials (Spring 2011)• NANO53 – Nanocharacterization Tools• NANO54 – Nanofabrication Tools
  • 4. NANO51• Applications of Nanotechnology – Nanoscience concepts (review) – Industry applications of nanotechnology • Products and devices • Nanomaterials• Nanostructures (intro to PNPA rubric) – Structure => properties => applications• Tools of nanotechnology – Fabrication and characterization
  • 5. NANO52• Nanostructures and Nanomaterials – Structure => property relationships – 20 key nanostructures – Physical property measurements – Characterization of structure – Nanostructures => nanosystems
  • 6. NANO53• Nanocharacterization Tools and Process – The case for characterization – Suites of characterization tools – Types of characterizing, failure analysis, etc.• Hands on work with AFM, SEM, XPS – Sample selection, data collection – Data analysis and reports• Working with clients, making presentations, recommendations, & industry competencies
  • 7. NANO54• Nanofabrication Tools and Process• Tools of the trade• Fabrication of key nanomaterials• Process development and optimization• Hands on preparation of materials – Thin films and surface coatings – Silicon processing (introduction)
  • 8. Foothill Energy Program• ENGR40 – Clean Energy Technology• Power Systems (to be written)• Clean Generation (module 1)• Smart Distribution (module 2)• Efficient End-Use (module 3)• Capstone (community project)
  • 9. ENGR40 – Clean Energy• ENGR39/40 start of the energy sequence• Clean energy technology industry• Modern energy systems (electrical utility infrastructure, T&D, grid fundamentals)• Clean energy solutions (wind, solar, etc.)• High performance buildings (LEED/EB)• High efficiency vehicles (transportation)
  • 10. Power Systems• Needs to be ‘scoped’ with UCSC• Introduction to electrical power systems• AC/DC fundamentals, motors, etc.• Utility infrastructure and grid operation• Foundation for energy program• Preparation for UCSC follow-on
  • 11. Energy Core Modules• Clean generation – RE (solar, wind), fuel cells, biomass, etc.• Smart distribution – Smart energy (smart grid) – Microgrid concept (active management)• Efficient end use – Buildings as whole systems (LEED/EB) – Transportation solutions (EVs, biofuels, etc.)
  • 12. Campus as a Classroom• Campus Energy System – ~ 8 M kWh annual electricity use – 250 KW cogen (microturbines) – 1.5 MW solar PV (4 projects)• Campus-wide EMS/BMS (in progress)• Itron interval and submetering projects• Central plant chiller / boiler analysis (TBD)
