A PhD, or Doctor of Philosophy, is an advanced degree awarded to those who decide to master their knowledge in a very specialized area of study. To complete such a degree program, students must first complete a thesis.

What is a PhD in Robotics? This program is typically heavily researched-focused and aims to equip participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop sustainable and effective engineering practices. In such a program, students may develop an advanced understanding of chemical engineering topics, industrial needs and technological systems and processes. The goal is to produce critical and innovative thinkers who can improve upon existing technologies, create new ones, identify trending and not-so-obvious issues within the sector, think strategically and develop creative solutions to address said issues.

Individuals who graduate from this program may possess skills that will serve them well in both their professional and personal lives. Some such skills include an in-depth understanding of advanced engineering, intellectual curiosity and independent and creative thinking capabilities.

The cost of this program varies widely, and individuals may expect factors such as location and the duration of the program to affect the final cost. Students who are interested should do their research before applying.

Technology is a growing industry and the need for individuals with an advanced education in the area is not going away anytime soon. That said, graduates of the program may find they have many exciting and lucrative career opportunities before them. Some such opportunities include work with machine automation, air traffic management, cybernetics, medical robotics and quantum mechanical systems industries in positions such as technicians, engineers, QA managers, air traffic controllers, software developers or robotic account managers. Businesses that may have a need for a person with an advanced degree in robotics may specialize in automotive, agricultural, electronics or manufacturing.

Where a student chooses to pursue his or her advanced degree depends on location, budget and schedule. Online courses are convenient for those who work full time or who have families.

Introduction

Nanotechnology is the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through control of matter on the nanometer (1 to 100 nm) length scale and the exploitation of novel properties and phenomena developed at that scale. Nanochemistry is an emerging subdiscipline of chemistry that emphasizes the synthesis rather than the engineering aspects of preparing little pieces of matter with nanometer sizes in one, two or three dimensions. The nanochemist can be considered to work towards this goal from the atom 'up', whereas the nanophysicist tends to operate from the bulk 'down'. Nanochemists develop new pharmaceutical products, structural materials, electronic device components, light-emitting materials, and many other products, many already available commercially. Supramolecular chemistry is the study of entities of greater complexity than individual molecules, assemblies of molecules that bond and organize through intermolecular interactions. The design and synthesis of supramolecular systems invoke interactions beyond the covalent bond, using, for example, hydrogen bonding, and metal coordination and π interactions to bring discrete building blocks together. Important concepts that have been demonstrated by supramolecular chemistry include molecular self-assembly, folding, molecular recognition, host-guest chemistry, mechanically-interlocked molecular architectures, and dynamic covalent chemistry. The study of non-covalent interactions is crucial to understanding many biological processes from cell structure to vision that relies on these forces for structure and function. Biological systems are often the inspiration for supramolecular research. Molecular machines are molecules or molecular assemblies that can perform functions such as linear or rotational movement, switching, and entrapment. These devices exist at the boundary between...

Ph.D. in Applied Micro and Nanosystems

Micro and nanotechnology has become a very broad field, spanning everything from physics to materials science, chemistry and electronics, and more.

The Ph.D. program in Applied Micro- and Nanosystems educates scientists with broad knowledge of micro and nano system technologies. This becomes an increasingly important part of our everyday life, in all sorts of "smart systems", as for example sensors integrated into mobile phones, equipment for medical diagnosis, for monitoring the environment and for instrumentation in industrial processes.

Academically it builds on a broad range of engineering and science: Electronics, product design/engineering, material-learning, computer science and chemical processing, and basic physics. The research training ranging from design and mathematical modeling with advanced software tools, the manufacturing, and characterization of national leader clean room laboratories.... [-]

The Ph.D. programme in BioRobotics aims at educating highly competent researchers with the potential to be leaders in this area. The students will be educated in a stimulating and multidisciplinary environment, both through high-level courses and through a demanding, creative and original research work. Doctoral research projects will be carried on in very well equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories (in such fields as bio-robotics, micro- and nano-technology, biomimetics, prosthetics) and through personal and teamwork performed under the supervision of a committed full-time faculty.

The students will investigate how biological systems work from an engineering viewpoint and will make use of such knowledge to pursue challenging research projects aimed at modeling, designing and building novel components and systems for biomedical applications, such as surgery and rehabilitation. The accomplishments of the students will be assessed by the number of papers published in peer-reviewed international journals and by the number of patents filed.... [-]

The Master in Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology constitutes the period of formation of the Doctorate in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The universities of Valencia, Alicante, Jaume I, La Laguna and Castilla La Mancha participate in this doctorate.

This doctoral program has the Mention to Excellence (MEE2011-0370) granted by the General Secretariat of Universities of the Ministry of Education according to Resolution of October 6, 2011.

In recent years, certain scientific areas such as supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, surface physics and low temperatures have reached a remarkable development in our country. Research groups have been formed that have achieved an excellent competitive position in the international area. In addition, in a natural way, the very object of research of these disciplines has been converging towards what is called Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Of the strategic importance in ID of these areas, the fact that they have been prioritized in all the National, European and International Programs of all developed countries is a good account. In these physical areas, chemists, biologists, doctors and engineers are in charge of obtaining, manipulating, organizing, studying and taking advantage of the properties of nano-sized objects. Maintaining today and in the future a truly competitive international position in some areas of Nanoscience, however, requires a level of competence that can only be achieved with a thematic focus and with adequate training of research personnel that allows them to acquire the multidisciplinary knowledge that these areas they need....
