The core competency of the nanofabrication research group is to synthesize variety of nanoparticles, characterize them using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and utilize them to fabricate devices for biomedical applications.
The B.S. in Nanosystems Engineering (NSE) is a four year undergraduate program leading to an ABET accredited engineering degree. This interdisciplinary program was established in 2005 and prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills to integrate basic nanoscale science and engineering fundamentals in order to produce useful technology for society. The program offers students the choice to select an engineering application focus area from biomedical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, or microsystems engineering. The program draws upon the strengths of our unique combination of laboratory resources and interdisciplinary research, education, and support programs.
The Ph.D. in Engineering is an interdisciplinary degree with a strong research emphasis. The program prepares candidates for both academic and industry careers. The PhD Engineering program offers a Micro/Nanotechnology curriculum.
The purpose of the degree is train graduate students in experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of research in molecular biology, chemistry, and physics, particularly where these disciplines intersect, and to prepare graduate students for interdisciplinary or traditional PhD programs in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Materials Science, Molecular Biology, and Physics which emphasize research at the intersections of one or more of the traditional disciplines.
The Ph.D. in Molecular Sciences and Nanotechnology provides a formal framework for students to engage in the study of structures and devices assembled by nature on the one hand, and those assembled by humans on the other.
Maryland NanoCenter has been established as a partnership among three University of Maryland colleges: The A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences (CMPS), and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences, with sustaining support from all three and the campus.
To meet the rapidly growing interest of students in nano, and to create the nano workforce of the future, Maryland NanoCenter offers an innovative undergraduate program, the Interdisciplinary Minor Program in Nanoscale Science and Technology, drawing faculty and courses from multiple departments of the A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences, and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences. The program is open to any student majoring in Engineering, Physics, or Chemistry.
The Materials Research Society is a not-for-profit organization which brings together scientists, engineers and research managers from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to share findings in the research and development of new materials of technological importance
'Bringing intelligence into micro-nano-systems' - The focus of this research group is integration of adaptive and machine learning techniques with micro-systems to achieve ultra-low power and robust operation.
