For many years now, our gadgets have been getting smaller and smaller. If this trend continues, construction and repair of electronics will require the services of nanotechnologists. These are people with the ability to manipulate matter at the molecular level.

Nanotechnology is expected to grow in the future, as gadgets continue to move in the direction of miniaturization and portability. Those looking for jobs as nanotechnologists should study organic chemistry, molecular biology and microfabrication.
