Nanoscience and Nanoengineering students and faculty are interviewed about their involvement in the statewide biotechnology research center BioSNTR funded by the National Science Foundation EPSCoR program and the State of South Dakota.

Nanoscience and Nanoengineering MS

Admission to the nano-SE MS program requires a bachelor's in an engineering or science discipline based on physical science. The Introduction to Nanoscience course is offered for students from a range of backgrounds as an introduction to nanotechnology. Check with your department to determine whether credit for this course may be applied towards your degree. Full course description is available in the South Dakota Mines Catalog.

Nanoscience and Nanoengineering refer to fields of science and engineering with a focus on visualizing, manipulating and delineating the laws governing all phases of matter on the scale of one billionth of a meter, roughly one hundred thousandth the diameter of a human hair. Nanotechnology refers to the specific technologies enabled by Nanoscience and Nanoengineering. The Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (Nano SE) MS program complements the Nanoscience and Nanoengineering PhD, with an emphasis on visualizing, manipulating and understanding nano-scale materials, nano-bio systems, and phenomena which define nanotechnology. The MS in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering is available with a non-thesis option only.

The Accelerated MS option is not available for this degree.
