Within a few years, nanoscience applications are expected to impact virtually every technological sector and ultimately most aspects of our daily lives. This master's programme rides the global trend for nanoscience, combining knowledge of physics, biology, and chemistry at the nanoscale with expertise in technology and engineering. Nanotechnology and nanoengineering are the application of this science to new nanomaterials and nano concepts, producing components, systems and products.
What is the programme all about?
Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering, newborn scientific disciplines are situated at the interface of physics, chemistry, materials science, microelectronics, biochemistry and biotechnology. Consequently, control of the discipline requires an academic and multidisciplinary scientific education. You will learn the basics of physics, biology and chemistry on the nanometer scale and the use of nanotechnologies for systems and sensors on the macro scale.
The programme is both strongly application and research oriented, and is closely linked to the research centres of global leaders such as imec, the Leuven Nanocenter and INPAC (Institute for Nanoscale Physics and Chemistry) at the Faculty of Science.
You will follow a set of introductory courses to give you the necessary multidisciplinary background of nanoscience, nanotechnology and nanoengineering, as well as a selection of general interest courses to provide some essential non-technical skills.
After opting for a specialisation option, you choose a set of compulsory, specific programme courses, complemented by a number of elective broadening programmes in subjects outside of the nanodomain. The programme culminates in the master’s thesis research project.
You can also elect to follow a similar programme in the form of an interuniversity programme, the Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
