|Nanotechnology: Transformational Research|
Nanotechnology represents the forefront of transformational research that will enable breakthrough and field-changing advancements in science and technology spanning a broad spectrum of engineering and science disciplines. It will serve as a growth engine for R&D for decades to come, with market demand for professionals with advanced degree training relevant to nanotechnology fueled by the permeation of new discoveries and applications into diverse sectors of the economy, including health, electronics, transportation, the environment, and national security.
|Converging Interdisciplinary Research Areas|
At Stevens, several interdisciplinary research focus areas with nanotechnology have been developed within the broad theme of Multi-Scale Engineering & Science at Stevens. These areas include:
- Chemical and Biological Micro-Systems
- Multi-Scale Design, Fabrication, and Manufacturing of Complex Structures and Composites
- Controlled Release and Regenerative Medicine
- Cell-Cell and Cell-Material Interactions
- Nanoparticulates for Environmental Remediation
- Quantum Electronic Structures and Devices
- Nano-Photonic Sensing and Imagining
- Health and Environmental Impact of Nanomaterials.
Research centers at Stevens contributing to these efforts include:
|Nanotechnology Graduate Program|
Our cross-cutting, Institute-wide Nanotechnology Graduate Program (NGP) provides stimulating and cross-fertilizing educational training in nanotechnology and contributes to as well as thrives from the Institute’s research excellence in related frontiers while preserving strong disciplinary fundamentals. The mission of the Program is to equip Stevens’ graduate and doctoral students with a multidisciplinary intellectual capacity so as to excel and compete in the ever expanding world of nanotechnology. Through pooling complementary faculty expertise and resources, the Program aims to provide students, via a common core course and a range of technical electives.
The program is jointly administered by the five founding academic departments at Stevens:
and leads to Masters of Science, Masters of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy in the respective disciplines with a designated nanotechnology concentration.
Candidates for Ph.D. degrees with the nanotechnology concentration must satisfy disciplinary core requirements, must complete the common core and a minimum of five elective courses, and must regularly attend the nanotechnology seminar series in the Nanotechnology Curriculum. In addition, a Ph.D. candidate must successfully execute a doctoral dissertation in the realm of nanotechnology. Applications are processed and decisions are made in individual’s home department.
