This interdisciplinary materials science and engineering track provides a strong foundation for nanoscience and nanotechnology and is designed to prepare MSE majors for future interdisciplinary careers, for graduate research programs in materials science, nanotechnology, bioengineering and other disciplines.
This program is comprised of three major components: arts and sciences, electrical engineering technology, and free electives. The electrical engineering technology component consists of core and concentration requirements in addition to electrical technology elective credits.
The area of concentration in nanoscale physics prepares students to investigate structures and systems at the interface of classical and quantum physics at nanometer length scales. It provides a hands-on, inter-disciplinary introduction to the cutting-edge science and technologies associated with exploring nanoscale phenomena. This area of concentration is especially well-suited for physics majors with inter-disciplinary career interests in biology, chemistry, and/or engineering.
CNSE is the world's first college to offer comprehensive baccalaureate programs in Nanoscale Engineering and Nanoscale Science - groundbreaking educational and research curricula that will uniquely prepare students for growing scientific opportunities in the nanotechnology-enabled careers of the 21st century. Building on CNSE's pioneering graduate-level program - which was also a global first when it commenced in September 2004 - the bachelor's degree curriculum, features a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, and truly innovative instructional portfolio centered on scholarly excellence that taps into CNSE's international academic leadership in nanoscale engineering and science.
