Vels University, Chennai, is introducing a two year masters program in nanoscience from 2012. Students with a bachelor's degree in pharmacy, physics, chemistry, biology, biotechnology and microbiology are eligible for this program. Applicants must have studied mathematics as part of curriculum at least at the Plus Two level.
HiVe -Vestfold University College offers a structured PhD Programme in Applied Micro- and Nano systems. The PhD Programme has a normal duration of three years, in which the candidate will attend courses, receive supervision and conduct research. In order to attend the programme, you must have obtained a Master degree, or equivalent, within a relevant field of study. Depending on the research project, you may spread the workload related to the PhD over four years, with 75% of the time spent on R&D and 25% on other tasks, e.g. teaching or work on relevant research projects.
The new program, which was developed by faculty in the VCU Departments of Chemistry and Physics, is designed to cross-train students in the physical sciences of chemistry and physics with particular focus on how the science changes at reduced dimensions. There is a potential for other departments to become more involved as the program develops.
Objective of the degree is to create a strong research focus, with high achieving students, working in state-of-the-art research laboratories equipped with world class fabrication and characterisation resources.
