Eight years ago, Mahatma Gandhi University established International and Inter University Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IIUCNN) to carry out intense research in the field of Nanotechnology. However, the Centre extended its attention to comprise both research and teaching in Nanotechnology. IIUCNN have always sought to bridge the researchers of University and industry by offering them a place to exchange their thoughts and encourage the scholars of the University to work on product development at industrial level.
Our students are passionate about the development of the cutting edge technology in the field of nanotechnology research and aspire to make a lasting global impact. During their time at IIUCNN, they immerse themselves in rigorous research, mastering fundamental theories and creating a personalized course of study that encourages experimentation. They collaborate closely with many scientists across the globe through conferences, workshops, exchange programs and activities. This melding of theory and practice touches everything we do. For these years, IIUCNN graduates have accomplished great things. I am proud to be part of an institution that inspires the cutting-edge thinking and innovative ideas that will prepare a new generation of principled scientists to make the world a better place.
