The interdisciplinary program in nanotechnology is open to all students, although it is geared towards students in engineering and science fields who seek specialization in the science and technology of processes, systems, and phenomena that occur at the nanometer size scale.
- Nanotechnology, Minor [Undergraduate Minor]
Students and faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno have the unique opportunity to study within this specialized area of research with access to cutting-edge technology, such as a new functional MRI facility—a partnership between our Center for Integrative Neuroscience and the Renown Health medical center.
- Ph.D. in Neuroscience [Ph.D.]
The objective of these interdisciplinary programs is to provide students with technical skills, economic and political background, and analysis and design skills that will help them to better apply the knowledge gained in their major field of student to the nationally important issues of alternative and renewable energy.
Unmanned autonomous systems fuse mechanical systems and computing technologies to create intelligent systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real world. Students learn to design, engineer and operate these groundbreaking systems in our new interdisciplinary minor.
