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.
The Center develops a rigorous research focus on using sustainable agriculture-based nanomaterials which could lead to breakthrough discoveries in the treatment and diagnosis of animal diseases, improve food safety, as well as interface closely with the infectious disease community supporting NBAF research initiatives.
In past decades, nanostructured materials have shown promise of revolutionizing a number of areas, including theranostic, electronic, and photonic materials. Applications of these fields include yet a wider range of specialities, which can be incorporated into sensor material design. This shall be the focus of the MEAN Lab; fundamental material properties and applications of nanomaterials to sensor design. The MEAN Lab shall span a spectrum of expertise (e.g. - nanomaterials, bionanotechnology, interfacial science, electrochemistry), all of which fall under the umbrella of sensor design.
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.
CAMD is a high-tech synchrotron research center whose role is to provide equipment, expertise, and infrastructure for research and development in the area of microstructures, microdevices, and recently, nanofabrication.

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.
