Nanotechnicians are entry-level workers, so there are plenty of opportunities for talented and ambitious technicians to advance—especially if they pursue additional education. Nanotechnicians with several years of experience and some advanced education (via college or through professional-development opportunities provided by industry associations) can advance to the position of nanotechnologist. These professionals are more focused on research and spend less time on rudimentary duties such as record-keeping and laboratory cleanup. Nanotechnicians who earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering can become nanosystems engineers, and those who complete master’s degree and Ph.D. programs can advance to the position of nanomaterials scientist or become college professors.
