Nanotechnology and nanosensors are broad, interdisciplinary areas that encompass (bio)chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, electrical engineering and more. The present course will provide a survey on some of the fundamental principles behind nanotechnology and nanomaterials and their vital role in novel sensing properties and applications. The course will discuss interesting interdisciplinary scientific and engineering knowledge at the nanoscale to understand fundamental physical differences at the nanosensors. By the end of the course, students will understand the fabrication, characterization, and manipulation of nanomaterials, nanosensors, and how they can be exploited for new applications. Also, students will apply their knowledge of nanotechnology and nanosensors to a topic of personal interest in this course. ---------------- COURSE OBJECTIVES The course main objective is to enhance critical, creative, and innovative thinking. The course encourages multicultural group work, constructing international 'thinking tanks' for the creation of new ideas. Throughout the course, you will be asked to reflect upon your learning, think "out of the box", and suggest creative ideas. The course is set to encourage the understanding of: 1. The importance of nanoscale materials for sensing applications. 2. Approaches used for characterizing sensors based nanomaterials. 3. Approaches used for tailoring nanomaterials for a specific sensing application. 4. Metallic and semiconductor nanoparticles. 5. Organic and inorganic nanotubes and nanowires. 6. Optical, mechanical and chemical sensors based on nanomaterials. 7. Hybrid nanomaterial-based sensors. ---------------- We recommend that you read the following supplementary reading materials: -Jiří Janata, Principles of Chemical Sensors, Springer, 2d Edition (1989). -Roger George Jackson, Novel Sensors and Sensing, CRC Press (2004). _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Teaching Team About Professor Haick Hossam Professor Hossam Haick is an expert in the field of nanotechnology, nanosensors, and non-invasive disease diagnosis.

The course content was adequate for the topic, unfortunately the execution was quite lacking.

Most of the video lectures were the prof reading directly from the text book. I found it easier to learn the content by reading by myself. The frequent mispronunciation of many of the words by the presenter was very distracting.

It was only the occasional embedded video that supplemented the printed material that was worth watching, and even some of that was questionable as to its merit.

I also found that some of the quiz questions were from sections of the text that were covered in subsequent videos. In addition, the wording of some of the questions made no sense. It would be a good idea to have someone familiar with this material proof read the quizzes.

[I would be happy to perform this task in return for credit to apply towards course certificates.]

It was unclear exactly how to submit the written projects. I don't think the "attached file method" was functional, and had to cut and paste the text into one of the text boxes before it would appear in the submitted content for review. (and which of the two should it go in?) The first student review that I performed was also lost so I had to do four of them before I could see my marks.

Lastly, the written projects were poorly done. The last one in particular seemed to be more of a gleaning of ideas from the students for future development by the prof. The topic was more IoT and less nanotechnology and Nano sensors. The poor execution of this course makes me re-consider taking part II, even though I am really interested in learning the material.
