Student Groups at UVa with Interest in Nanotechnology


The Nano and Emerging Technology Club (NExT) is a student run organization devoted to building awareness among the student body of nascent technologies. Beyond a regular speakers series, there are many events and trips planned. NExT and nanoSTAR collaborate to facilitate undergraduate research opportunities, support outreach activities, and further the mission of both organizations.


The E*Society is a student group aimed at bringing together the University’s entrepreneurial resources and promoting a culture of collaboration, interdisciplinary thinking, and action for new ventures. We seek to put students at the center of an active and growing entrepreneurial ecosystem. The E*Society has offerings in 4 categories: Social Networking Events, Informal Get-togethers, Competitions & Team Formation, and Speakers & Education.
