Arizona State University offers a Professional Science Masters (PSM) in Nanoscience degree program. This interdisciplinary degree is earned through a combination of coursework and an Applied Project, under guidance of individual faculty, in conjunction with their research groups. Courses enable both student choice of area (e.g. Nano-materials and Nano-electronics, Biophysics and Bio-Nanotechnology, or Biophysics, Biochemistry and Sensors) and a shared Core course experience. The Core courses include Quantum Physics for Nanoscience, a Professional Seminar, Nanoscience and Society and Innovation & IP-management. The program involves ~40 faculty members from Physics, Chemistry & Biochemistry departments and from Materials Science and Electrical Engineering.
