Master of Science in Nanotechnology Engineering

General

Program Description

The Masters Degree Programme in Nanotechnology Engineering trains engineers in the design, development and control of complex systems based on Nanotechnology. Starting from their basic background in engineering, students will be introduced to the basic tools necessary to master systems operating at the nanoscale with the purpose of conceiving, designing and characterizing micro and nanodevices.

The course is highly interdisciplinary, involving nanoscale physics, advanced chemistry and microscopy in combination with courses and laboratories devoted to the design of micro- and nano-devices for different application in industry, biotechnology and nano-electronics.

Students can choose one of the following three programmes:

  • Micro/Nano-Device Design and Technology
  • Biotechnology
  • Nano-electronics

The programme addresses multi- and inter-disciplinary subjects to provide students with the flexibility required to understand, design and handle applications at the micro- and nano-scale. The first part of the program is common to all three programmes and provides basic knowledge in nanoscience, including subjects such as Matter Physics and Quantum Mechanics, Advanced Chemistry, Scanning Probe Microscopies and Spectroscopies, Electronic Microscopies, Atomistic Simulations, Optics, Micro-Electromechanical Systems, Macromolecular Structures. Moreover, specific applications will be addressed for subjects such as Mechanical, Electric and Electromagnetic Design of Micro/Nano Devices, Micro- and Nanoparticle Technology, Micro- and Nano-fluidics, Electromagnetic Fields and Nano-systems for Biomedical Applications, Electronic Nanotechnology, Optoelectronics, Photonic Microsystems, Laser Fundamentals.

Students are also expected to select labs to complete their programme.

Degree Structure

Applicants to the Masters Degree Programme in Nanotechnology Engineering must hold a Bachelors Degree in Engineering (e.g. Material Science, Electronic & Electric, Mechanics & Aerospace) or equivalent degree and should have a good command of the fundamentals of engineering (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry).

The Master's Degree in Energy Engineering Programme is based on 120 ECTS credits over two years (1 CFU is equivalent to 1 ECTS credit). Credits are divided as follows: 54 ECTS - basic training module, 33 ECTS - elective training module A/B/C 12 ECTS - elective training subjects, 18 ECTS - final project

The Masters Programme in Nanotechnology Engineering Programme has established several student exchange programmes with top universities and research centres abroad.
