Nanotechnology Interdisciplinary Graduate Program

Nanotechnology Interdisciplinary Graduate Program

Nanotechnology plays a growing role throughout engineering and science fields, addressing old problems with radical solutions and inviting new research into quantum properties of materials.

Stevens has developed an interdisciplinary program for stimulating both foundational and applied research at the nanoscale to provide students with the support necessary to access the cutting edge of nanotechnology development. From their home departments, graduate students cut across disciplines to develop the expertise and skills necessary to succeed in original, high-level areas of academic nanotechnology research.

The interdisciplinary Nanotechnology Graduate Program at Stevens provides a concentrated study into the nano- to macromolecular scale for students across five departments. The current list of participating departments is as follows:

Both Master's and Doctoral students participate in this program, which includes focused nanotechnology coursework, research laboratory access, and a seminar series featuring leaders in the field from academia, government, and industry.

More information can be accessed at the Nanotechnology Graduate Program Web site or the department home pages.
