Nanotechnology Master's and Doctoral Programs: University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo offers Nanotechnology Master's and Doctoral Programs Collaborative Programs. This interdisciplinary research program at the University is pivotal for graduate teaching and research in M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in Nanotechnology. The departments of Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and Astronomy) and Engineering (Chemical, Electrical and Computer, Mechanical and Mechatronics, and Systems Design) offer this program conjointly, providing students with a thought-provoking educational environment that spans from basic through to application. In addition, the joint program aims to permit students to gain perceptions of nanotechnology from a vast community of scholars within and outside their disciplines in both course and thesis work.

Master's Program in Nanotechnology
The M.Sc. collaborative program provides a resilient foundation in the upcoming areas of nanoscience in planning for the personnel or further studies and research leading to a Ph.D. degree. 
 

Research areas: 

  • Nanomaterials
  • Nano-electronics design and fabrication
  • Nano-instruments and devices
  • Nano-biosystems

Requirements:

  • The students in the collaborative program in nanotechnology must complete four half-credit courses (0.50 unit weight), including NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology, one required nanotechnology core course, CHEM 784 Foundations of Literature Review, and CHEM 794 Master's Seminar. Students who have finished their Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Nanotechnology Engineering at the University of Waterloo cannot take NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology. Instead, they can choose any one course from the list of nanotechnology core courses.

Ph.D. Program in Nanotechnology
The Ph.D. program aims to prepare students for academic careers, industrial research and development, and government research labs.
Requirements: 

  • The students in the collaborative program in nanotechnology must complete three half-credit core courses (0.50 unit weight), including NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology, 1 Nanotechnology core course, and one elective graduate-level CHEM course (0.50 unit weight). Students who have completed their Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in Nanotechnology Engineering or a Master's degree in Nanotechnology at the University of Waterloo can not take NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology. Instead, they can choose any one course from the list of nanotechnology core courses.

Ph.D. Direct from B.Sc. (3 years) 
Students admitted with an appropriate Honours Bachelor's degree who transfer directly to the Ph.D. program must complete five half-credit courses, including NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology, one Nanotechnology core course, CHEM 784 Foundations of Literature Review, CHEM 794 Master's Seminar, and one elective graduate-level CHEM course. 

Ph.D. Direct from M.Sc. (2 years)
Students who transfer directly from a Master's program to the Ph.D. program must complete six half-credit courses (0.50 unit weight), including NANO 600 Introduction to Nanotechnology, 1 Nanotechnology core course, CHEM 784 Foundations of Literature Review, CHEM 794 Master's Seminar, one elective course, and one graduate-level CHEM course.

Intake: January, May, September

Applications:

  • Applications must be filled out online and provide evidence of English language proficiency (if applicable). TOEFL 90 (writing 25, speaking 25), IELTS 7.0 (writing 6.5, speaking 6.5), TOEFL Internet-based overall score: 90.0.
