The Materials Science and Nanotechnology programme from Bilkent University spans from the fundamental to the applied and innovative research and equips the students with the necessary knowledge and cutting-edge skills to grow into scholar and practicing scientists and researchers who will not be afraid to delve into and be able to offer creative solutions to the challenging problems of today and tomorrow.
The courses to be taken by the MSN graduate students should focus on the subject of their own thesis work.
21 credit units of course work beyond the M.S. level or 42 credits of course work beyond the B.S. level is required. Ph.D. candidates must pass a qualifying exam, typically in their fourth semester; and then must prepare a dissertation proposal.

The expected duration to complete the Ph.D. program is eight semesters for students who enter the program after an M.S. degree, and ten semesters for those who enter after a B.S. degree. The maximum durations are twelve and fourteen semesters, respectively.
