Technology Studies

A PhD is often the most advanced post-graduate degree offered by an institution. A master’s degree may be a prerequisite to program acceptance. Successful candidates can achieve their doctorate in five to eight years.

What is a PhD in Technology? Programs at this level involve study and research using advanced technologies and draw from multiple disciplines, including math, science and economics. Individuals may choose from a considerable array of specialization areas. Students attracted to design and architecture may gravitate towards construction management or mechanical engineering. Those with a passion for the environment may participate in a program concentrating on sustainable development. Close collaboration with an advisor can help tailor the focus to meet the individual’s needs and reduce program duration.

PhD candidates often display exceptional research and analytical skills. Students can identify, evaluate and synthesize research results to solve complex problems and communicate sophisticated concepts. Interpersonal and planning skills can aid individuals in their personal life and in moving up in their current profession.

College and university costs vary from one to another. Level and intensity of the program, length and location may be factors that affect the fees. It is important for students to fully research programs and schools before enrolling to ensure their goals can be met.

Careers for individuals completing a doctoral program are highly competitive in traditional PhD arenas, such as administrator or professor positions at the highest levels of academia. Researchers in the medical and healthcare industries may be in demand, with advancement opportunities. Nontraditional roles can include program director at a consultancy or as a think tank analyst where complex problem-solving requires analytical thinking and creativity. The nonprofit sector has opportunities ranging from policy creators to fundraiser. 

Earning a PhD in Technology could launch successful careers in new industries and improve earning potential.  Accredited programs are available in universities worldwide as well as online.

PhD in Nanochemistry - Supramolecular

University of Tehran, Kish International Campus
Campus Full time Part time September 2018 Iran Tehran

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. [+]

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...
