Nanoscience is the study, manipulation and engineering of matter, particles and structures on the scale of nanometers. Nanoscience gives us the ability to use new tailored materials and nanosized components for a plethora of new innovative products, applications and optimized processes. There are currently no doubts about the potential of nanoscience and nanotechnology, material science and sustainable processes to change our world.

The aim of this master programme is to train new professionals specialized in the fields of Nanoscience and Nanothecnology, Materials, and Chemical Engineering (coming from undergraduate degrees in any of the branches of experimental sciences and technologies: Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Physics, Microbiology, Quantum Chemistry, Biological Chemistry,…) with a profound orientation towards research. The hard and soft skills acquired qualify the students to join universities, research institutes, industry and services that have a strong vocation of innovation and development, as well as with an entrepreneurial vision.

Providing to students knowledge and skills, the master’s programme is a springboard for students who want to work in research, development and innovation at universities, research institutes and industries that require new scientific and technical knowledge:

  • Research at universities and research institutes. The official master’s degree is a requirement for being admitted to a PhD programme and the key to a future career as a researcher.
  • Research, development and innovation in industries based on new scientific and technical knowledge (biotechnology, microelectronics, telecommunications, energy storage, new materials, etc.) and traditional industries (chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, ceramics, textiles, etc.) interested in innovation and development.
  • Management, control and strategic planning of nanotechnological techniques, products and processes in the electronics industry, telecommunications, biotechnology, biomedicine, pharmacology, etc.

The duration is 60 ECTS, a year from October to September next year.

The whole master is entirely taught in English
