Department to offer new one-year, non-thesis M.S. in Engineering at the Nano-scale for fall 2016


The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics will begin offering a new one-year, non-thesis, residence-based master of science degree program in fall 2016. The application deadline is August 1, 2016.

Nanotechnology is one of the most rapidly growing and exciting fields, and nanoscale science and technology continue to have an increasing impact on our daily lives. The nanotechnology consumer products market already has more than 1,000 nanomaterial-containing products. With this industry growth comes ever-expanding career opportunities in virtually all industries.

The 30-credit program is ideally suited for individuals with bachelor’s degrees in science, and most engineering engineering fields, who are planning to pursue careers in areas such as biomedicine, aerospace, electronics, information technology, manufacturing, and advanced materials, to name just a few.

The program combines an interdisciplinary foundation in nanoscience and nanoengineering with significant hands-on nanofabrication experiences that are essential for graduates to meet the growing industry demand for skilled nanotechnology personnel or to continue towards their Ph.D. degree.
