The Nanotechnology Engineering program is an interdisciplinary program sharing a common foundation with all programs delivered at University of Science and Technology during the first year. Such a foundation guarantees that all students master basic sciences.
Nanotechnology Engineering students are also introduced to Materials Science. Starting from the third year the students focus on specific areas of nano-technology: nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanosystems and nanoconstruction. These sub-disciplines are carefully chosen to align with the activities of the institute of Nanotechnology in Zewail City. During the third year all students will be rigorously exposed to the essential background for nanotechnology, including nanofabrication techniques, material characterization, and quantum mechanics. During Years 4 and 5 students start to study specialized advanced courses. All students have access to the advanced research.
