Education

Northwestern is one of the nation’s premier research universities, combining innovative teaching and pioneering research in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary, and diverse environment.

The university is based in Evanston, with additional campuses in downtown Chicago, and in Doha, Qatar.

Oakton Community College is a comprehensive 2 year school that serves District 535 of the Illinois Community College system.  This is essentially the north suburban region of Cook County.  The College offers courses for university transfer, career entry and enhancement as well as developmental curriculum. 

The nanotechnology laboratory courses represent an effort at career training in the area that we plan to share with district high schools by negotiating various dual credit agreements.  With appropriate funding, we intend to also offer industrial seminars on the topic.  Click for Oakton Community College
