We also highly welcome students who have entrepreneurial ambitions.
IGERT Nanomedicine Science and Technology program at Northeastern University is a new integrated doctoral education program in the emerging field of Nanomedicine, created with support from the National Cancer Institute and the National Science Foundation.
Rice University has established a unique interdisciplinary program in Nanophotonics aimed at providing science and engineering students with the educational and research training to develop new tools for generating, controlling and manipulating light at nanoscale dimensions.
The multidisciplinary program builds on the fundamentals of traditional engineering and science, combined with curriculum and research activities addressing the numerous technical challenges of micro- and nano-systems. These include the manipulation of electrical, photonic, optical, mechanical, chemical, and biological functionality to process, sense, and interface with the world at a nanometer scale. The goal is to provide the foundation to explore future technology through research in nano-engineering, design methods, and technologies for micro- and nano-scaled systems.
The Ph.D. degree programme includes 4 compulsory courses and 2 thesis-related electives. Thesis research is co-supervised by faculty from Singapore and MIT, and in many cases, is carried out in collaborations with researchers in Singapore?s research institutes. Thesis research topics range from problems in fundamental materials physics to development of new nano-scale devices.
The Nano Ph.D. program offers a research-intensive degree focused on nanoscience and nanotechnology, with an emphasis on nano-scale materials. A multi-disciplinary core curriculum is taken by students from diverse science and engineering backgrounds. These 'core' courses are intended to introduce students to contemporary topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and to initiate a cross-disciplinary approach to research and learning.
Participation in the Nanotechnology Graduate Program leads to Masters of Science, Masters of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy in the respective disciplines with a designated nanotechnology concentration. To qualify for the nanotechnology concentration, in addition to satisfying disciplinary core requirements, candidates for Masters' degrees must complete the common core and a minimum of three elective courses and should attend regularly the seminar series in the Nanotechnology Curriculum.
The following Technion academic units participate in this interdisciplinary program: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Materials Engineering and Bio-medical Engineering.
The University of Aveiro, particularly acknowledged for its research concerning the synthesis, properties and applications of nanomaterials, offers a program of study leading to the Ph.D. degree in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. In its first stage, students are introduced to contemporary topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, comprising several courses in the field and thus initiating a cross-disciplinary approach to research and learning. Different research units at the University contribute actively to this stage. Students admitted to the second stage of the doctoral program follow to N&N activities leading to the elaboration of a doctorate thesis. The courses are taught in English.
