In this programme, you will acquire knowledge in fundamental physics, material sciences, nanosciences and computational methods. Moreover, you will gain various competences through the advanced practicals and workshops proposed within the programme, all beneficial for your future professional activities.
This Master of Science programme is built upon the following standpoints:
To comprise the above goals, our courses in fundamental nanophysics and its applications in material science are organised in a full, two-year master programme, in collaboration with several other scientific institutions.
All the acquired competences in the Master will contribute to the easy integration of the graduates in the academic world, the European R&D base, as well as in the private job market. A large fraction of our graduates continue their education in a PhD programme, but many of them also find careers in private companies (as scientists, engineers or managers) and teaching institutions.
