The Joint School of Nanoscience  and Nanoengineering has launched a program with Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University (BVDU) that will bring master’s students from India to the joint school.

“Their students complete the coursework for their M.Tech degree at BVDU, and a small number will come to JSNN to perform their research for their degree,” said Dr. Jim Ryan, JSNN dean.

“The program is very competitive, and the students who will come to JSNN are of the highest caliber. We expect four to arrive in January.”

Some of the students may have an opportunity to stay at the JSNN for their doctoral degrees, Ryan said.

BVDU has 125,000 students located on 15  campuses in seven Indian cities, including Pune, where it is based; Mumbai; and New Delhi.

It hosted the international Nanocon 12 conference last week in Pune.  N.C. A&T was a partner in the conference, and Ryan was a member of the event’s international advisory board.

Dr. Barry Burks, A&T’s vice chancellor for research and economic development, was a speaker, as were three JSNN faculty members, Dr. Ajit Kelkar of N.C. A&T and Dr. Dan Herr and Dr. Christopher Kepley, both of UNC Greensboro.
