Notre Dame Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano) promotes collaborative research in science and engineering to address unsolved scientific and technical questions with an aim to promote the greater good. Advances in imaging and characterization, multi-physics modeling, synthesis, growth, and nanofabrication are enabling breakthroughs in all science and engineering disciplines. NDnano is where Notre Dame faculty, researchers, and students meet to broaden understanding, discuss multidisciplinary research opportunities, and shape future research directions.

Is the new Materials Science & Engineering Phd right for you?

This year, the University of Notre Dame introduced the interdisciplinary Materials Science and Engineering graduate program, open to students in the following seven participating departments/programs:

Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, Electrical Engineering, or Physics.

With the support of their faculty advisor, current Notre Dame graduate students already pursuing a PhD degree in a participating department/program can transfer into the Materials Science and Engineering program (generally sometime in the first three years of their doctoral studies). Learn more to see if the new program is right for you!
