Graduate programs

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering offers four graduate programs and a variety of Graduate Certificates. JSNN offers state of the art facilities that make obtaining a degree or a certificate in one of our areas a rewarding experience with a vast array of employment opportunities. Our programs are offered through our departments and their affiliated universities, i.e., Nanoscience through the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Nanoengineering through North Carolina A&T State University. Visit the links below to learn more, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Nanoscience sits at the intersection of mathematics and the core fundamental sciences: physics, biology, and chemistry, as well as their derivatives.                     

Available at UNC Greensboro

Students earning a Ph.D. in Nanoscience will be expected to design, organize and manage multifaceted research programs or projects in the areas of nanotechnolog.

Available at UNC Greensboro

The Master of Science in Nanoengineering degree program is a research Master’s degree featuring coursework involving engineering at the nanoscale. 

Available at N.C. A&T

This program is designed for students with a strong academic track record who seek advanced-level education and training to pursue careers in academia, or industries.

Available at N.C. A&T

Graduate CERTIFICATE programs

JSNN has four research focus areas—Synthetic biology, nanomaterials (with special emphasis on nanocomposite materials, molecular structure and devices), computational nanotechnology, and Environmental science and sustainability.  These technical areas will afford numerous opportunities for collaboration with industrial partners.

Advanced materials are engineered materials with designated properties created by specialized process and synthesis technology and involves nanomaterials.

                                                        Available at UNC Greensboro

This certificate program trains and educates students in concepts related to the design of advanced materials, understanding their physical, mechanical, chemical, and structural properties.                  Contact us at jsnninfo@ncat.uncg.edu

The Graduate Certificate in Medical Science program allows students with STEM degrees to understand the fundamental concepts in medical science and prepare them for their future careers related to this ever-expanding health-related field.                          

Available at UNC Greensboro

The Graduate Certificate program in Systems and Synthetic Biology is an interdisciplinary program that combines concepts from the life sciences, computing, and engineering fields and requires a converging technologies training approach.                                        Contact us at jsnninfo@ncat.uncg.edu

Nanoscience is the study of small things, and advances in this field make it possible to create innovations such as ultra-small senses, advanced drug delivery systems, and novel materials.

 

Available at UNC Greensboro

Synthetic biology involves redesigning biological systems such as enzymes for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities and functions. It can be used to find solutions in medicine, manufacturing, and agriculture.     

                                                    Available at UNC Greensboro

The post graduate certificate in STEM Entrepreneurship is a program for any students who has an interest in learning how to establish or operate a business based on research and development in a STEM discipline.
