Program Overview

If you enjoy laboratory work and have the desire to apply your scientific skills to the latest technologies that shape our world, then this may be the right path for you.

 Do you enjoy…

  • Going into the nano world to understand the basic unit of anything and investigate, design and invent new structures and materials out of it?
  • Carrying out laboratory experiments and data analysis?
  • Getting to grips with the latest research in Nanoscience and its impact on technology?

 If yes, then you should consider joining this new and unique program at GU.

What Is Nanoscience?

Nanoscience and Technology program is an interdisciplinary science program designed for students interested in developing and manipulating materials at the molecular level. In the first two years students will build strong background in basic sciences; Physics, Chemistry and Biology before getting more specialized during the last two years in the field of study of their own choice. This will enrich their knowledge and allow them to work independently or within multidisciplinary teams .

Nanotechnology is the study of any science at the nanoscale. It is a big umbrella that covers wide range of applications.For instance, Nanomedicine produces nanomaterials such as gold nanorods, nanofibers to help cure disease. Nanoelectronics develop all smart electronics that we use these days from phones and computers to medical robots that can invade our bodies to perform surgical operations. Food and agricultural industry that use novel nanosized products to improve food product quality and features.

Nanotechnology proved to be capable of affecting everything in our life. It has applications that is involved in energy generation, drug synthesis and development, food industry, fabric and cloth production, hair dyes and beauty industry, beds and bedding improvement. It has an impact on everything in our day to day life.

  • If you’re looking for a program which will prepare you for a successful career at the forefront of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ , then this could be exactly what you’re looking for. You’ll explore the incredible potential of the nanoworld either by creating nanocapsules that are strong enough to kill cancer cells or produce very light weight airplane using ‘wonder materials’ like graphene (200 times stronger than steel, yet just one atom thick) and how these nanomaterials are set to revolutionize everything from computing to aerospace.
