Ask  A&T employee Chancellor Harold Martin where are  A&T Nanoscience Master's and Ph.D. Degrees.
 
 

The University of North Carolina Board of Governors approved the establishment of the MS in Nanoscience on November 13, 2009, and the establishment of the PhD program in Nanoscience on January 8, 2010 but not at NC A&T.  In order for UNC-G to offer Nanoscience degrees it must access NC A&T academic circular and research [ Although the degree is in Nanoscience (and does not include Nanoengineering), students will be given the opportunity to take relevant courses at the School of Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in the school of Engineering- request to plan Ph.D. in Nanoscience.]
 
The Mission of the JSNN is to offer joint interdisciplinary Ph.D. degrees and joint professional master's degree (M.S). The Board of Governors didn't authorized NC A&T to offer Nanoscience M.S. and Ph.D. degrees therefore NC A&T is not part of the JSNN Mission but is compelled to support UNC Greensboro Nanoscience M.S. and Ph.D. degree.

 Request to Plan Joint NCA&T/UNCG Joint Nanoscience Ph.D.
 

 
For Liberal Arts UNC Greensboro to offer Nanoscience degrees  requires access to NCA&T academic programs and research:  “Although the degree is in Nanoscience (does not include Nanoengineering), students will be given the opportunity to take relevant courses at the School of Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in the School of Engineering”.
 

NC A&T Academic Profile

 
 

The UNC Policy Manual 400.1.1.1[G]


A degree program is a program of study in a discipline specialty that leads to a degree in that distinct specialty area at a particular level of instruction.   As a general rule, in order to be considered for degree program status, a course of study should require at least 27 semester hours in the proposed program area at the undergraduate level; at least half the number of hours required for the degree at the master’s level; and at least 21 hours in the proposed program area at the doctoral level. [Adopted 05/06/09]
 
Notwithstanding  the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES), categorized Nanoscience as CIP 15.1601 Engineering Technologies and Engineering-Related Fields.  UNC General Administration applied  CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering . Note UNC-G has a School of  Arts and Science.
 Note Fall 2005 UNC Presidency transition from President Molly Broad  to Erskine Bowles.
 
Professional Master of Science in Nanoscience
The 33-hour, non-thesis MS in nanoscience follows the Professional Master of Science degree model, featuring course work in nanosciences and business and an internship to provide practical experience.
 
UNC General Administration applied  CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering determined UNC at Greensboro offered only a Master in Chemistry on the graduate level in the category of Physical Science.
 
Doctor of Philosophy in Nanoscience
The PhD in Nanoscience requires a minimum of 60 hours and is designed to prepare students to take positions in industrial, governmental, or academic research settings by providing a solid background in Nanoscience theory and experimental techniques through course work and dissertation research.
 
 
”The addition of a doctoral program is not an easy or simple extension of the master’s program. Unlike most master’s programs, a doctoral program is research-based. While doctoral program requirements routinely include additional course work, the central program requirement is the dissertation. The topic for the dissertation normally derives from discussion with faculty who are engaged in research and therefore knowledgeable about the “frontier of knowledge” in the discipline. For a faculty member to then properly guide and assist the student’s dissertation research, that faculty member must be an active researcher. Hence, the implementation of a doctoral program must be preceded by the assembling of faculty who are conducting publishable research in that discipline.

Nanotechnology is Experimental
NCA&T State University has been funded at an average rate of $3-5 million per year in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the research in nanoengineering is done in the Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS). Several Centers and projects are under CAMSS, including the NSF Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST), the DoD Center for Nanoscience, Nanomaterials and Multifunctional Materials (CNN) for Homeland Security, the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), the NSF project on US/Europe Materials Collaboration: Self-Organized Nanostructured Thin Films for Catalysis, the NSF project on Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT), the NSF Major Research Instrumentation for Nanoengineering Research, and the NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) program. CAMSS also facilitates many of the materials research activities of the NASA-National Institute for Aerospace (NIA). In addition, the Center for Composite Materials Research (CCMR) does research in nano-enhanced composite materials and the Army Center of Excellence for Battlefield Capability Enhancements (Flexible Displays) does research in material characterization and development of novel displays.  NCA&T was 4th in Nanotechnology Research at North Carolina Universities with $11 Million Dollars between 2000-2005. UNC at Greensboro 10th among the 11 institutions conducted $45,000 dollars of Nanotechnology research between 2000 thru 2005.
 
UNC General Administration categorizing Nanoscience Ph.D. as a Physical Science; examining UNC Greensboro curricula for similar Physical Science Ph.D.  programs determined UNCG offer no similar Ph.D. programs.
 
Offering Nanoscience degrees constituted a Substantial Change from previous approved programs as defined by SACS for Liberal  Arts UNC-G. (UNCG) Rebecca Adams to (SACS) Tom Benberg : Sarah Armstrong [SACS] Subject: Request for interpretation of accuracy of Nanoscience message, April 13, 2010: This request will be for approval to initiate a new off-campus site (South Campus) and to initiate a new degree program (MS in Nanoscience) at that site. Contrary to previous interpretations, both represent substantive changes for us.
 
Unambiguous UNC Greensboro academic inventory was substantially below the general rule at least half the number of hours required for the [Nanoscience] degree at the master’s level; and non-existent  least 21 hours in the proposed program [Nanoscience] area at the doctoral level; Its [UNCG} historically strong programs in music, education and nursing are not the kinds of programs that spin off research and development or software companies to fuel high tech economies."] Greensboro Business Organization were seeking UNCG/NCAT  Knowledge and Industry Campus not a NCA&T Millennial Campus.
 

 
Historical black North Carolina A&T, as one of the state's two land grant institutions, has programs through the doctoral level. Its programs include engineering, arts and sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, business and economics, education, nursing, technology, and graduates studies. “The expected roles of a land-grant institution, is teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services” .  Consistent with other engineering schools in the UNC System offering Nanoscience and Nanoengineering programs  are not  Substantial Changes as defined by the SACS and  consistent with the education, curricular, mission and goals of NC A&T State University.
 

 UNC Board of Governors January 2007 authorized UNC Charlotte, which has an Engineering School, to offer a Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science.  Offering Nanoscale Science was not a Substantial Change as defined by the SACS for UNC Charlotte.  Nov. 2012 UNC Board of Governors authorized a Master’s in Nanoengineering to Land Grant Institution NC State, which has an Engineering.

“The Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering….. built on the major nano-technology research activity that had been established at nearby Wake Forest and at NCA&T”
 
Request for Proposals by Gateway University Research Park for Construction The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering- dated Sept. 1, 2004

Project Overview:
The JSNN will support established research programs with faculty from the two universities and will have its own faculty lines as well. The primary goal of the school is to be a world leader in research, nano-related education, and outreach. The JSNN will promote Research goals, Education goals, and Outreach goals.
 
Historical Black Land Grant NCA&T was listed as University focus on Nanotechnology in 2005.
Cross-town Historical White UNC Greensboro was not listed as a University focused on Nanotechnology.
 
“Activities/Resources: Leverage faculty collaboration at JSNN to enhance research partnerships between UNCG and NCA&T researchers.  Expected Result, UNCG opportunities in grants previously unavailable due to limitations in areas of certain research expertise. “
 
“In addition to degree programs in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, JSNN will engage in research and outreach, as well as the expected roles of a land-grant institution, such as teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services.”
   
 
UNC BOG Committee on Budget and Finance, April 2006, approved recommending 1.3 million dollars for planning a Biotechnology Building at NCA&T to full BOG.  Proposed facility would enable NCA&T to support ongoing and expanding research activities in bioengineering, biotechnology, and biomedicine.  NC A&T' biotechnology program is interdisciplinary and will incorporate research activities currently housed in the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and School of Agriculture and Environment Sciences The Total cost of this project is $25 Million dollars.
UNC Board of Governors 2007-09 budget Priorities bogus claim the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development- renamed  Gateway University Research Park- as NCAT/UNC-G Joint Millennial Campus relocated NCA&T College of Engineering, School of Technology, Physical Sciences and Applied Sciences programs and research, off –campus to the bogus Joint Millennial (with UNCG) doubling the cost $25 million vs. $50 million.
