The two-year MSc programme in Nanotechnology focuses on the design, creation and study of functional materials, structures, devices and systems by directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale.
Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field, focusing on structures ranging from 1 to 100 nanometres. This emerging field brings together elements from traditional disciplines such as applied physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and biology. Nanomaterials offer an inexpensive and readily available resource with the potential to improve our lives in many ways. Their major implications for the world around us range from solar cells and energy innovations to nanomedicine breakthroughs in medical diagnosis (e.g. lab-on-a-chip). This MSc offers you access to world-class labs and state-of-the-art facilities such as our own cleanroom and nanocharacterization lab. The programmes connections with MESA+, one of the worlds leading institutes in nanotechnology, guarantees you an exciting research environment and the best academic training available anywhere. Studying for an MSc in Nanotechnology is a smart move. Many of our graduates go on to study for a PhD, with opportunities at the MESA+ institute. Nanotechnology is generating a host of new jobs in high-tech companies that create novel materials and devices for a range of applications in energy, water, healthcare and electronics.
This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.
