Что я буду изучать?

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program aims to instill in students the skills needed to identify research issues in Chemical Engineering, formulate an original research plan, and develop creative and innovative solutions that address the research issue. A candidate for a PhD degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.

Nanotechnology Concentration

Nanotechnology has become one of the most visible and fast growing multidisciplinary research areas. Nanotechnology research, ranging from nanostructured-materials to nanoelectronics, covers diverse areas in many disciplines, such as medicine and healthcare, aeronautics and space, environmental studies and energy, biotechnology and agriculture, national security and education. Because of the diverse and multidisciplinary nature of Nanotechnology, its research and training can be best integrated into different disciplines. The Nanotechnology concentration seeks to equip students with the necessary knowledge in the areas on which they wish to focus on.

It covers different disciplines including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electronic and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. This allows students to enroll in a particular discipline and pursue a focused-study on a specific area of Nanotechnology.

The School of Engineering has introduced a Nanotechnology Concentration in different disciplines with the following research foci.

Research Foci

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Study of nanocatalysts, nanocomposite and nanoporous materials, nanomaterials for environmental applications, atmospheric nanoparticle pollutants, usage of nano-sized magnetic particles and nano-electrocatalysts, morphology/ property relationship of polymers at nanoscale, bio-functionalized nanoparticles for diagnostics and biosensing, nanocarriers for drug delivery and nanomaterials for tissue engineering, and nano-biomaterials for treatment of industrial effluents.

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Development of iron-based nanoparticles for the removal of heavy metals from groundwater and industrial wastewater, polymeric nanocomposites for the surface coating of concrete structures, and fate, transport, transformation and toxicity of manufactured nanomaterials in water.

Electronic and Computer Engineering

Design, fabrication, and characterization of compound semiconductor-based nano-electronic devices, integration of compound semiconductor-based nano-electronic devices on silicon, modeling of nano-CMOS devices, nanoscale transistors, nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS), nanosize photo-alignment layers, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanoelectronic devices design and fabrication, and system-on-chip and embedded system designs using nanotechnologies.

Mechanical Engineering

Nano precision machining, nanofibers, carbon nanotubes, graphene and organoclay nanoparticles, nanoindentation, applications of nano-particles for printable electronics and nano composites; integrated nano bubble actuator, nanosclae fluid-surface interaction, multiscale mechanics, nanoscale gas transport, micro/ nanomechanics; molecular dynamic simulations, thermal interface material; micro fuel cell, and nano-structured materials for lithium ion battery electrodes.
