GET TO KNOW YOUR PROGRAM

The PhD in Nanotechnology is designed to stimulate the value chain, using the foundation of nanoscience to generate groundbreaking scientific knowledge that encourages the development of innovative nanotechnology-based products and/or services, and also identifies entrepreneurial opportunities with nanotechnological bases.


Graduates from the Ph.D. in Nanotechnology are scientists who create knowledge to establish novel and innovative technologies that are relevant for the materials and manufacturing sectors, and understand basic phenomena within the field of Nano sciences. They work as leaders or as collaborators within national and international research groups, on areas such as Nano materials, Nano sensors and Nano photonics, among others.

The findings of their discoveries are important outcomes which should be submitted for peer-reviewed and academic publication, patents or conference proceedings. This knowledge transference as well as all of their professional activities follows legal, ethical and official norms.

  • Access to highly competitive jobs in higher education institutions, research centers, and technology-based industries.
  • Participation in multidisciplinary projects with specific objectives oriented to science and nanotechnology applications.
  • Development of innovative research projects in your area of specialization, which can lead to entrepreneurial opportunities.
  • The teaching body is made up of researchers, all of them belonging to the Mexican National System of Researchers, or SNI.
  • Access to networks of national and international initiatives of scientific collaboration.
  • Students are benefited by the long term agreements of scientific collaboration that Tecnológico de Monterrey has with internationally prestigious universities, such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), among others.

Tecnológico de Monterrey is accredited by associations such as: SACS*, CIEES, SEP, and CONACYT**

The PhD program in Nanotechnology is designed for candidates with proven academic ability, creativity, motivation and potential to carry out investigations revealed in original works that contribute to enrich the field of nanotechnology.

 In the case of DNT, it has an adequate mechanism for selecting applicants who considered the relevant aspects to identify the academic profile, as the research necessary for outstanding performance.

Tecnológico de Monterrey seeks to integrate in all its graduate programs a new generation of students who have completed their undergraduate studies and who are distinguished by being: talented people, enthusiastic, committed to the development of their environment and the well-being of society; people with the potential to successfully complete their program and become leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit, human sense and internationally competitive.

Academic background: Master’s degree in an area related to the research lines of the program.
