Seminar Series: Students attend weekly seminars. The seminars promote interaction between students from different disciplines, providing a comprehensive view of the integration of nanotechnology into numerous areas of research. Attendance at these seminars is mandatory.
Students are expected to attend the seminars for the duration of the program. Students who cannot attend the seminar series due to a schedule conflict should submit a printout of their schedule along with a letter explaining the conflict to Tesse Smitherman.
The Graduate Portfolio Program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology was first offered in Fall 2004. As of Fall 2010, a total of 172 students enrolled in the program. These students represent 8 departments and 33 different research groups. Currently there are 75 students are currently enrolled.
Students are accepted into the program in spring and fall semesters.
All students applying for the program must submit the following:
b) One page research proposal
c) Letter of support from advisor indicating that the student will be permitted to participte in Portfolio activities (e.g. coursework, seminars)
d) Graduate school transcript
