Graduate Programs

Though several other U.S. universities offer degree programs with courses in nanoscale science and engineering, the NanoEngineering Department at the UCSD Jacobs School aims to build an graduate program that will address those topics in a comprehensive way. The curriculum will address fundamental chemical and physical issues that arise when engineers work at the nanoscale. Faculty will foster the kind of stimulating multidisciplinary environment where cutting-edge discoveries are made. This innovative approach goes to the heart of the Jacobs School's style of research and education. Graduates of this program will become leaders in the evolving nanotechnology industry and benefit new and existing enterprises in the region and nation.


NanoEngineering serves as the administrative home of the M.S. and Ph.D. Programs in Chemical Engineering and effective Fall 2010 the curriculum for the M.S. and Ph.D. NanoEngineering programs has been approved.
