Nanotechnology PhD Research Projects for Non-European Students

We have 43 Nanotechnology PhD Research Projects for Non-European Students

A PhD in Nanotechnology is a 3-4 year research programme where you will be working with a supervisor to research, design and develop new applications of Nanomaterials.

What's it like to study a PhD in Nanotechnology?

As nanotechnology becomes more and more popular in industry, you may find that many universities specialise in certain fields of Nanotechnology, such as Biomedical and Materials Engineering.

Possible research areas include:

  • Nanocatalysis and energy storage
  • Nanomaterials for solar energy and water remediation
  • Nanoparticles for biomedical imaging and therapeutics
  • Using nanomaterials in advanced materials

You may also choose to study aspects of Nanotechnology that form the basis of wider research in the field, such as quantum physics.

Most PhD programmes in Nanotechnology will require you to complete a thesis, which you'll be required to submit by the end of your programme. You may also be required to give occasional departmental presentations on your research.

You may also choose to do a Masters to prepare for a PhD in Nanotechnology, though this is generally not required.

Like other STEM subjects, PhDs in Nanotechnology are advertised with a required proficiency level in certain subjects. You may be required to show that you have the required knowledge level before you can be accepted onto a programme.

Most PhDs in Nanotechnology are advertised with a proficiency level in certain subjects.

PhD in Nanotechnology entry requirements

The entry requirements for a PhD in Nanotechnology will usually require you to have a Masters degree with a Merit or Distinction, or a 2.1 undergraduate degree, with a specialisation in the field of research of the programme.

Some programmes may ask you to submit a research proposal before you can be considered for admission, though this is quite rare.

PhD in Nanotechnology funding options

Depending on where you study, you may be able to access government loans or you may be eligible for certain grants. You can also apply for Research Council studentships which provide tuition fee waivers and monthly stipends. You may also choose to self-fund your study.

PhD in Nanotechnology careers

There are many career opportunities available for you with a PhD in Nanotechnology. You can work in diverse fields such as Biomedical Engineering and Materials Engineering.

You may also choose to continue your research through a postdoc or go into academia.
