M.S. Nanoengineering

Description:

The NanoEngineering graduate degree program prepares students to enter the Nanotechnology workforce, as well as prepare students to enter a wider variety of engineering, science and/or medical career paths. Students wishing to pursue a Master of Science (M.S.) in NanoEngineering degree can be admitted into the program for either the ‘M.S.-only’ route (a terminal Masters degree) or the M.S. route, where the student intends to pursue a Ph.D. degree after completing the M.S. degree. 

The student also has two other options for the pursuit of their M.S. degree: a Thesis Route or an Examination Route. Both routes require the completion of the same five core classes, with the Thesis Route requiring one additional elective course and the Examination Route requiring four additional elective courses.  Both routes require a total of thirty-six (36) units.

Courses: 

All students must enroll in NANO 200, complete five mandatory core courses and one course from any focus area selected from an approved list of graduate courses. In addition to classes, students must either complete a thesis (Plan I) or pass a comprehensive examination (Plan II). The course offering for the M.S. and the Ph.D. degree programs are the same.
