The California NanoSystems Institute has many participating departments working on interdisciplinary research in nanosystems and nanotechnology.
The CNSI is currently developing a graduate degree program for students interested in pursuing advanced studies in nanosystems research and technology. This program will be designed to include a number of multidisciplinary courses in nanosystems research spanning different schools across campus.
The goal of the CNSI education program is to nurture the future workforce of scientists and engineers with experience using nanoscience and nanotechnology to solve problems in biological and environmental engineering. The CNSI is working to maintain California's position as a leader in nanotechnology research and development.
Interdisciplinary courses in nanotoxicology are now available at UCLA through the Nanotoxicology Research and Training Program (NRTP). For information about the NRTP and course description please click here.
At present, the CNSI is not a degree granting entity.
How can graduate students participate in the research at the CNSI?
Graduate students can apply to the home departments of the faculty members whose research interests them. To apply for graduate study with any of the CNSI faculty members visit the home departments listed at Graduate Study at UCLA
Students can also visit the following departments directly:
