Nanotechnology offers groundbreaking applications in physical and natural 
sciences. Recent advances provide revolutionary nano-materials/systems whose 
properties can be customized. The future of science and engineering is expected 
to be shaped by nano-materials. As described by Richard Feynman, arranging atoms 
to manipulate materials became increasingly important in the last decade. 
Understanding the fluid dynamics, heat transfer and surface chemistry at the 
nanoscale is of great importance. 

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is the second largest school in the 
University of Tennessee System, serving a diverse student body of more than 
11,000 undergraduate and graduate students through five academic colleges. Since 
its founding in 1886, UTC has developed a reputation for excellence build on an 
unusual blend of the private and public traditions of American higher education. 
Chattanooga, the fourth largest city in the state, is located in Southeast 
Tennessee near the border of Georgia. The city has received national recognition 
for the “renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its 
riverfront”. Chattanooga also has the fastest internet in the country. Home to 
the first Gig Internet in the United States, Chattanooga has a 100% fiber 
network that links every home and business in a 600-square mile area.  
Attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War 
battlefield sites, the African American Museum, and the Appalachian Trail bring 
thousands of people to the area, as do events like the Riverbend Festival, 
Nightfall, Jazzanooga, and the Southern Writers Conference. People who love the 
outdoors use Chattanooga as a base for hang-gliding, bass fishing, mountain 
climbing and caving expeditions; the beautiful Smoky Mountains and Tennessee 
River support the greatest variety of flora of any area in the United States. 
Chattanooga also has a long and rich past with regard to diversity. Chattanooga 
is also just a two-hour (or less) drive from Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville, and 
Birmingham. Whether it’s Chattanooga’s ideal geographical location with 
comfortable temperatures year-round to suit an active lifestyle, its cultural 
and culinary diversity, reasonable cost of living, world-class healthcare 
facilities, reputable educational institutions like UTC, or countless other 
reasons, it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing to make Chattanooga 
their home.
