The Nano School

Nanotechnology is often referred to as convergent technology because it utilizes knowledge from a diverse array of disciplines including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and technology. JSNN has six research focus areas—nanobioscience, nanometrology, nanomaterials (with special emphasis on nanocomposite materials), nanobioelectronics, nanoenergy, and computational nanotechnology.

Leading the Industry in Nanoengineering and Nanoscience

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) mission is to be a catalyst for breakthrough innovations that provide high-impact academic, industry and government research outcomes.

Welcome to Gateway University Research Park

Build-to-suit construction of your new office space or building can be handled by Gateway or alongside trusted contractors. We can provide development services such as ground-up construction, tenant improvement projects and fit-ups, construction management services, design and space planning, renovations, and LEED building options.

SENIC. Your Research Partner.

Created as a partnership between the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) to provide researchers from academia, small and large companies and government with access to university user facilities with leading-edge fabrication and characterization tools, instrumentation, and expertise within all disciplines of nanoscale science, engineering and technology.

Master's in Nanoengineering

Master of Science in Nanoengineering degree program is a research degree, featuring coursework involving engineering at the nanoscale. For students with a strong background in engineering seeking industrial or government positions utilizing nanotechnology.

Ph.D. in Nanoengineering

The Ph.D. in nanoengineering requires a minimum of 54 credit hours beyond MS degree and is designed to prepare students to take positions in industrial, governmental, or academic research settings by providing a solid background in nanoengineering theory and experimental techniques through course work, laboratory rotations and dissertation research.

Master's in Nanoscience

What Users Are Saying...

By joining NIC as a member I added 65 Million dollars of assets to my company. I hired a Ph.D. scientist to work on research and development at JSNN, and in doing so, I was the first to create a job because of the NIC.
