Certificates & Training Programs

Nanoscience Certificate

The mission of the new Graduate Certificate Program in Nanoscience is to educate students in Nanoscience disciplines and applications. This graduate program is designed to address the need for an interdisciplinary graduate education at Duke in Nanoscience that extends beyond the traditional disciplines and skills that are taught within any existing department. In this program, graduate students are educated and mentored in classes, labs and research projects by faculty from many disciplines spanning the physical sciences, engineering, and basic biological-science disciplines relevant to Nanoscience. The program includes faculty from departments within Arts and Sciences, the Pratt School of Engineering, and the Medical School.

WISeNet IGERT Training Program

The purpose of the WISeNet Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) program is to prepare Ph.D. students for interdisciplinary research in wireless sensor networks. Students in this program are supported for up to two years, and receive a WISeNet graduate certificate upon completion of a Ph.D. degree from one of the participating departments.
