Masters of Science in Nanotechnology
The Masters of Science in Nanotechnology provides academic excellence in advanced sciences and technologies through an interdisciplinary education in the fields of materials science, physics, chemistry, and engineering preparing students for careers in industry, education, and research, with the capacity necessary to compete and excel in the ever-expanding world of nanotechnology.
This program is facilitated by the available state-of-the-art equipment at the Yousef Jamil Science and Technology Research Center (YJSTRC).
A total of 33 credit hours are required for the Masters of Science degree. This consists of 24 credit hours of courses, 6 credit hours of thesis work, and 3 credit hours of seminar.
The Masters of Science in Nanotechnology graduates scientists and engineers who:
- Have the knowledge of the enabling technologies and the key aspects relevant to application in nanotechnology
- Foster a strong culture of interdisciplinary research and development at AUC, Egypt and the region
- Engage in advanced academic and research careers
- Excel in an interdisciplinary environment both as individuals and within a team
- Seize and develop commercial opportunities in the fast-advancing nanotechnology field locally and globally.
A bachelor’s degree in sciences or engineering, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 is required for admissions into the nanotechnology master’s program. Admission is also subject to the general university requirements for graduate programs. For those students whose grade records indicate promising ability, but who otherwise do not have adequate preparation in sciences or engineering, admission may be granted under the requirement that remedial courses will be taken.
