In year 2010 Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) was established as anacademic collaboration between North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University andThe University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Both Universities are classified by the CarnegieFoundation as “research universities with high research activity.” JSNN builds on the strengthsof the two universities in the basic sciences and in engineering to offer an innovative, cross-disciplinary graduate program that will train scientists in various emerging areas of nanoscienceand nanoengineering. The MS and PhD programs in Nanoengineering features courseworkinvolving engineering at the nanoscale. It is designed for students with a strong background inengineering who seek additional, specialized training in order to find industrial or governmentpositions in fields that utilize nanotechnology. The graduate program has four focus areas:Nanocomposites, Nanoelectronics, Nanobiology and Computational Nano. In year 2007 NorthCarolina A&T Sate University signed Memorandum of Understanding with Bharati VidyapeethDeemed University in Pune, India (BVDU) which involves student/faculty exchanges. As a partof this program two faculty members received their doctoral degrees in the area of advancednanocomposites and after their return to India in year 2011 they have established a new MSdegree program in nanoengineering in India. This paper addresses challenges faced and successachieved in the area of innovations in nano materials education through this newly collaborativeMS program in Nanoengineering between JSNN and BVDU..
