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

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 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.

This coursework and admission requirements are detailed in the South Dakota Mines catalog.
