The Materials and Nanotechnolgy Program at North Dakota State University is an interdisciplinary Graduate Program spanning several Colleges and Centers, but sustained primarily by the College of Science and Mathematics, the College of Engineering and Architecture, the Graduate School and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering. Both PhD and Master’s degrees are offered. Graduate students work closely with one or more faculty on challenging problems directed at meeting the technological needs of society in the 21st Century. Areas of focus include sensing and electronic design, flexible electronics and photovoltaics, polymer nanocomposites and high performance polymer coatings, biologically synthesized materials, biomedical engineering, combinatorial science, and targeted drug delivery systems. Research projects are conducted in any number of laboratories across campus, including the state-of-the-art Research 1, Research 2 and Batcheller Technology facilities in Research and Technology Park. The Fargo-Moorhead area is rapidly emerging as a competitive and attractive region for new start-up companies and high-tech industry.
