Ph.D. Nanoengineering

Description:

The Ph.D. program is intended to prepare students for a variety of careers in research and teaching with an emphasis on research. A Ph.D. in NanoEngineering requires the selection of a specific focus [Biomedical Nanotechnology, Molecular and Nanomaterials, or Nanotechnologies for Energy and the Environment], and consists of the successful completion of 10-12 courses: five required core courses, three or four electives from the student’s selected focus, and two or three electives from any of the two remaining focuses, the ENG-10X courses (for team engineering, leadership, and entrepreneur skills) or from an approved list of electives from other departments across campus, with advisor’s consent.

Program Type: 
Nano-Focused
College/Department: 
Jacobs School of Engineering: Department of Nanoengineering
Year Established: 
2010
Courses: 

All students must enroll in NANO 200, complete five mandatory core courses and three or four courses in their selected focus area, plus two or three additional courses from the other two focus areas. The course offering for the M.S. and the Ph.D. degree programs are the same.
