AKU plans to work in multifaceted manner along with our regular pursuits of quality teaching (at Postgraduate level) and research.
Candidates have to choose any one of the following papers for admission to Ph.D. programme depending upon their choice.
• Physical sciences
• Chemical sciences
• Biological sciences
• Engineering streams
The question paper will be divided into two parts of 50 marks each. Part-A will consist of fifty multiple choice questions on general science awareness type and Part-B will fifty multiple choice questions on the respective subjects. The syllabus can be seen on the university website.
The centre is currently under the process of establishment under supervision of
Dr. Anal Kant Jha
Acting as Establishment cum Scientific Officer
The organizational chart illustrates the proposed plan of action along with the support systems and their outcomes. This centre will carry sophisticated instruments and support facilities in order to keep pace with the exponential up surge in modern technologies. This centre will have its own Training & Placement cell and IPR cell which will look after the matter like: Patent, Technology transfer, Commercialization, etc.
The challenges posed by nanoscience and nanotechnology cannot be answered solely by principles and techniques derived solely from a single science or a technology discipline. Instead, it requires the contributions of diverse inter-related fields, but is not limited to, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering.

It was need of time or produces of deeply meditated thoughts of our visionary Chief Minister Shri Nitish Kumar and Vice Chancellor Prof. S.N. Guha that Aryabhatta Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology came in to existence. It may seem like an ordinary research establishment but has many stories of sacrifices and indefatigable efforts nestled in it. Our Honourable Chief Minister was pondering over alternatives after being hived off from Jharkhand and our Honourable Vice Chancellor having 42 years long stint as a renowned academician was thinking over something new, exciting and attached directly to the society. Fortunately that day arrived very soon and it was on 17.03.2011 when Dr. Kamal Prasad, an established Scientist of Nano Science and Technology, was invited from T.M. Bhagalpur University to deliver the foundation day lecture. What a wonderful co-incidence! It was attended by the Honourable Chief Minister himself and his colleague Minister of Education along with Minister of Arts and Culture. Top bureaucrats and academicians of the city had also graced the occasion. The aura of promise of Nanoscience and Technology influenced our Honourable Chief Minister and he readily agreed to support the establishment of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Centre at Aryabhatta Knowledge University and invited Dr. Prasad and his group colleagues to contribute towards an earliest possible establishment of the centre. Prof. S.N. Guha, our honourable Vice Chancellor, took this idea as a mission and pursued tirelessly and this is how his cherished dream got fructified in to reality. Fortunately, this is one of the first centres of this university and many more like: Aryabhatta Centre for Life Science & Technology; Aryabhatta Centre for Stem Cell Technology; Aryabhatta Centre for Astronomy, Astrophysics & Applied Mathematics; etc. are to be established very soon.
