Nanoscience and nanotechnology (NANT) education along with its associated infrastructure, are already essential learning in many international academic and industry sectors. We are now in the midst of a race to acquire the next generation of technologies that can use nanoscience in numerous applications. A society that produces more and better prepared STEM graduates will provide both industry and society with a better selection of creative talent. To foster new interest in NANT among STEM students for next generation of graduates to compete in the global market, a number of universities have started new courses in the field of NANT. Discussion on how to effectively teach the new courses will advance the NANT education.
