Program Description:

Nanotechnology has given us the tools...to play with the ultimate toy box of nature –atoms and molecules. Everything is made from it (…). The possibilities to create new things appear limitless.« Nobel Laureate Horst Strömer, Lucent Technologies and Columbia University Nanomolecular Science is an inherently transdisciplinary research field that has an impact on a very broad range of industries and technologies, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, semiconductor and computer industries, biotechnology, environmental remediation, energy, information, material, and medical technologies. Program Our graduate program combines concepts from both chemistry and physics to teach nanoscience. Phase 1 consists of course work (9 courses / 3 semesters) and research in the area of your interest, this leads to theMSc thesis (4th semester). This is a research-based thesis and students begin their thesis research at the end of the 1st semester of study within a faculty members’ research group. Phase 2 is a PhD thesis under the supervision of one of the faculty members of the graduate program, which provides independent in-depth research experience while teaching problem-solving skills. Eligibility for Phase 2 is only available to those graduate students with sufficient grades on their MSc qualifying exam.
