The purpose of this study was to explore students' learning satisfaction when applying concept mapping with computer assisted teaching tools and to reveal students' learning progress in Nanometer course. The research method adopted in depth interviews. A total of six participants from the Nanometer course at National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences in Taiwan participated in interviews lasting 30 to 60 minutes. The research results revealed that students satisfied with the concept mapping instruction in the Nanometer course. The concept mapping instruction did effectively improve students' comprehension and retention memories as well as inspire students' learning interests and enthusiasm for Nanometer technology. Additionally, students also agreed that concept mapping instruction is an applicable approach to be applied into other professional fields or self-applications besides the science-related subjects. Finally, results even further indicated the deficiencies and suggestions proposed from students for concept mapping instruction.
