The graduate program is designed to address the need for an interdisciplinary graduate education at Duke in Nanoscience that extends beyond the traditional disciplines and skills that are taught within any existing department.
The Master of Science in Nanoengineering degree program is a research Master's degree, featuring coursework involving engineering at the nanoscale. It is designed for students with a strong background in engineering who seek additional, specialized training in order to find industrial or government positions in fields that utilize nanotechnology. Qualified applicants will have an engineering degree and as a minimum, will have completed mathematics courses through differential equations.
The 33-hour, non-thesis MS in nanoscience follows the Professional Master of Science degree model, featuring course work in nanosciences and business and an internship to provide practical experience. It is designed for students with strong backgrounds in technical fields who seek additional specialized training to qualify them for positions in companies that work in the field of nanotechnology.
The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering has been approved it?s Ph.D. in Nanoengineering by the UNC-GA. Program details to come stay tuned.
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 degree program will hold classes on campus, but will also be the first master's degree program in nanoengineering that is offered via online distance education - making the program available to students who are already in the workforce. The program will also offer concentrations in biomedical science in nanoengineering, materials science in nanoengineering, and nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.
The Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science at UNC Charlotte is an interdisciplinary program that addresses the development, manipulation, and use of materials and devices on the scale of roughly 1-100 nanometers in length, and the study of phenomena that occur on this size scale. The program prepares students to become scholarly, practicing scientists who possess the critical thinking, methodological, and communication skills required to advance and disseminate knowledge of fundamental and applied nanoscale science.
