This Masters is a programme designed to train students in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, as a pathway to begin research leading to a doctoral thesis. The most relevant knowledge areas are chemistry, physics, engineering, material science, biochemistry, pharmacy and medicine.
The subject matter of the Masters lies in the crossroads between nanoscience/ nanotechnology and molecular systems. It emphasises currently relevant scientific areas such as molecular electronics, molecular magnetism, supramolecular chemistry, surface physics and molecular materials science .
On completing the Masters students should have multidisciplinary training in aspects related to nanoscience, both chemical (a bottom-up approach to nanoscience, to design functional molecules and supramolecular structures, molecular interaction, molecular self-assembly and self-organisation) and physical (a top-down approach for nanofabrication, physical techniques of manipulation, organisation and characterisation of nanomaterials).
The students will also learn to focus on scientific problems from a material science perspective, and will acquire an overview of the impact of nanoscience on other scientific and technological areas such as electronics, chemistry, biomedicine and material science.
This inter-university Masters has two fundamental objectives:
a) To establish a national standard of excellence at Masters level, which will prepare students for research in molecular nanoscience and nanotechnology, and provide the knowledge and abilities needed to work in high-tech companies.
b) To encourage mobility and knowledge exchange between students of the various universities, and contact with research centres and companies working in the field.
The academic committee will take into account:
