The Centre for Nano Science and Technology (CNST) aims at initiating and pursuing research activities in areas related to nanotechnology and nanoscale phenomena, for various applications at Masters level and collaborative research with other universities, institutes and industries.
The Ph.D. in nanoscience requires a minimum of 60 hours and is designed to prepare students to take positions in industrial, governmental, or academic research settings by providing a solid background in nanoscience theory and experimental techniques through course work and dissertation research. Advanced elective courses in nanoscience areas ensure students will have substantial depth of understanding in their area of interest and enable them to effectively carry out advanced nanoscience research.
