Nanotechnology (M.Sc.) at AUC

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.

Program Objectives:

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 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 program. For those students whose grade records indicate promising ability, but who otherwise are not have adequate preparation in sciences or engineering, admission may be granted under the requirement that remedial courses will be taken.

Courses (24 credit hours):


The program of study is planned with the faculty advisor, and should include a minimum of 9 hours of core courses and a minimum of 12 credit hours of electives:

I. Core Courses (at least 9 credit hours)


NANO 501 - Advanced Quantum Mechanics (3 cr.)
NANO 502 - Simulation and Modeling for Nanoscale Materials and Systems (3 cr.)
NANO 503 - Advanced Testing and Characterization Techniques (3 cr.)
NANO 504 - Fabrication of Nanomaterials For Films And Devices (3 cr.)
NANO 505 - Nanochemistry (3 cr.)
NANO 506 - Management and Economics of Nanotechnology (3 cr.)
II. Nanotechnology Elective courses (at least 12 credit hours)


A minimum of 12 credit hours are required from this list of courses.

Students may also take a maximum of one 400-level courses in Sciences and Engineering, or other related areas subject to their advisor’s approval.

NANO 521 - MEMS/NEMS Technology and Devices (3 cr.)
NANO 522 - Electronic Transport in Semiconductors (3 cr.)
NANO 531 - Nanomaterials, Synthesis, Processing and Applications (3 cr.)
NANO 532 - Nanocomposite Science and Technology (3 cr.)
NANO 533 - Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage (3 cr.)
NANO 541 - The Chemistry of Nanostructures (3 cr.)
NANO 542 - Nanoelectrochemistry (3 cr.)
NANO 551 - Nanotechnology Applications in Construction Materials (3 cr.)
NANO 552 - Nanotechnology in Studying Damage and Failure in Structures (3 cr.)
NANO 561 - Solid-State Devices (3 cr.)
NANO 562 - Advanced Integrated Circuit Design (3 cr.)
NANO 571 - Bionanotechnology (3 cr.)
NANO 592 - Selected Topics in Nanotechnology (3 cr.)
Thesis (9 credit hours)


Each student must submit a thesis topic that has been approved by a faculty supervisor by the end of the first academic year. Various research topics are discussed in NANO 590 and 591, Graduate Thesis Seminar I and II, respectively. Students must register for Graduate Thesis Seminar I (NANO 590) before submitting a thesis topic while Graduate Thesis Seminar II (NANO 591) should be taken during the execution of the thesis research work. To insure adequate faculty consultation on the thesis, the student must register for the Research Thesis Guidance course (NANO 599) by the completion of 18 credit hours. The NANO 599 course must be registered over two consecutive semesters after which the course may be registered for one credit hour each semester until completion of the program requirement.

NANO 590 - Graduate Thesis Seminars I (2 cr.)
NANO 591 - Graduate Thesis Seminar II (1 cr.)
NANO 599 - Research Guidance Thesis (3 cr.)

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
