The Nano science program focuses on scientific phenomena that occur at sizes around a nanometer. The first two years of the program give the student a solid foundation in basic sciences. A strong emphasis on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics will provide students with a unique and versatile set of theoretical skills. During the last two years students can choose one of four concentrations, namely; nano-medicine, bio-nanotechnology, nano chemistry or nanophysics. Most of the courses in the Nano science program have an advanced lab component, giving students hands on experience. In addition, all concentrations are carefully selected to have full support from various research institutes at Zewail City. Furthermore, capstone projects are directly linked to real life problems that will help the graduate to have a running start immediately after graduation.
