The Electrical and Computer Engineering master program participates in the university-wide Graduate Certificate Program in Nanoscience, which provides an interdisciplinary education in the broad areas of nanoscience and nanomaterials.
This Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering (with concentration in Nanocience) program is offered through the multidisciplinary Fitzpatrick Institute of Photonics, which is based within the Duke University Pratt School of Engineering. Students are encouraged to develop broad and transferable sets of skills in their course work and research activities.
This master program at Duke University is led by international leaders in the areas of nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, microfluidic systems, integrated optics, sensors, integrated multifunctional devices/systems, energy conversion devices, and quantum sensors.
The Microelectronics, Photonics and Nanotechnology research at Duke University is highly interdisciplinary, and includes the fabrication of devices and circuits through the state-of-the-art Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) cleanroom and characterization lab.
Students can also opt to earn graduate certificates in:
Our Microelectronics, Photonics and Nanotechnology concentration is designed to prepare master's students either for PhD research or to directly obtain engineering jobs in the broad semiconductor industry.
