The Triad may become the home for a school of nanotechnology and nanoengineering, The Carolina Journal reported on Thursday.

“If this gets funded, it will be seminal event for Greensboro and the Triad,” said UNC-Greensboro Provost A. Edward Uprichard. He told the Journal that the program would be a national model if approved.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and North Carolina A&T are seeking $65 million from the UNC Board of Governors for the project. If approved by the board, the state’s General Assembly would have to grant final approval.

The request includes $10 million for a lab and $50 million for a building.
