A faculty team from Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biology and Physics have developed three 300-level general education lecture courses in nanotechnology and a 400/500-level supporting laboratory with NSF support. This paper focuses on one of these courses: ECE/SCI 383U Nanotechnology: Simulation and Design. The course is open to science/engineering majors and students from non-technical fields alike, with minimal pre-requisites, and qualifies as a general education course for most of these. It includes four components: · A qualitative lecture course in nanoelectronics · A lab course in nanoelectronics simulation with LTspice · A reading and discussion course in nanotechnology generally, but focused on nanoelectronics, and · A technical writing course using laboratory reports as exercises. The paper reports on the background and structure, and experiences to date.
