Nano SE PhD Curriculum

The Nano SE PhD program builds on traditional science and engineering disciplines, and offers a "core" curriculum which introduces students from varying science and engineering backgrounds to contemporary topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Students are expected to obtain graduate level training in a traditional discipline, designated as the "program major emphasis", and take a minimum of 6 elective credits outstide their own area. Students entering the program with an MS may apply up to 24 transfer credits towards fullfilling the program major emphasis requirements. More information is available in the Nano SE PhD Program Handbook at the bottom of the page.
