         Our Program  


The cross-cutting, Institute-wide Nanotechnology Graduate Program (NGP) is jointly administered by the five founding academic departments:

Participation in the Nanotechnology Graduate Program leads to Masters of Science, Masters of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy in the respective disciplines with a designated nanotechnology concentration. To qualify for the nanotechnology concentration, in addition to satisfying disciplinary core requirements, candidates for Masters degrees must complete the common core and a minimum of three elective courses and should attend regularly the seminar series in the Nanotechnology Curriculum. Thesis option is also available for Masters degrees. Candidates for Ph.D. degrees with the nanotechnology concentration must satisfy disciplinary core requirements, must complete the common core and a minimum of five elective courses, and must regularly attend the nanotechnology seminar series in the Nanotechnology Curriculum. In addition, a Ph.D. candidate must successfully execute a doctoral dissertation in the realm of nanotechnology.

Applications are processed and decisions are made in individual home departments. Disciplinary admissions standards apply. Please note that the NGP does not accept or process applications. Please contact the appropriate department directly for questions regarding the admissions process of that department.

For more information regarding the admissions process for the Nanotechnology Graduate Program, students should contact one of the appropriate departmental representatives below:

Students interested in pursuing an Interdisciplinary Graduate Degree with a concentration in Nanotechnology should direct questions to Dr. Charles Suffel, the Dean of Graduate Academics at Stevens Institute of Technology.






Stevens Institute of Technology

Founded in 1870, Stevens Institute of Technology educates and inspires students to acquire the knowledge needed to lead in the creation, application and management of technology and excel in solving problems in any profession.

Located in Hoboken, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from Manhattan, Stevens' graduate programs educate professionals to advance in industries increasingly influenced by technology and enable scholars to explore the frontiers of their disciplines. Research at Stevens takes place within a scholarly and supportive community of faculty, students and staff who together seek to push the boundaries of technology development within and across science and engineering disciplines.

An extension of this collaboration is the concept of "Technogenesis," the educational frontier wherein faculty, students and colleagues in industry jointly nurture the process of conception, design and marketplace realization of new technologies.
