The program of the Advanced Master in nanotechnology offers to the holders of a Master degree a complementary and/or advanced training in the field of nanoscoences and nanotechnologies. It is aimed at those, who do not have any training in the domain, want to get specialized in that field, or to those, who already followed courses on a specific topic in the field during their Master, want to complement their expertise with courses in another domain of nanotechnologies.

The Advanced Master in Nanotechnology is a 60 ECTS program organized around five main subjects:

  • nanophysics : quantum phenomenons, molecular transport, spintronics, simulations, physical characterisations, ...
  • nanochemistry : nano-particles synthesis, quantum chemistry, chemical and physico-chemical characterisations, ...
  • nanoelectronics : micro- and nano-electronics, MEMS, NEMS, electronic characterisations, ...micro- & nano-électronique, MEMS, NEMS, caractérisation électronique,...
  • nanomaterials: nano-composites, nanowires, nanotubes, polymers,...
  • nano-biotechnologies : bio-materials, bio-physics, nano-medecine, bio-sensors,...

This program also aim at training students to the multidisciplinary aspects of nanotechnologies. Therefore, it puts forward the various approaches used in the field: knowledge of the fundamental phenomenons at the nanoscale, nano-fabrication or synthesis of nano-structures, nanostructure characterisation, and numerical simulation at the nanoscale. It also increase student awareness on the societal impacts of nanotechnologies by means of seminars on the following topics: ethics, economical aspects, nanotechnology applicaions, nanomaterials toxicity, ...
