Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Start date: Sep 20, 2015,
End date: Sep 19, 2019
Objective The objective of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is to provide a top quality and broad multidisciplinary education in the emerging field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, coupled with an individual top-level specialization in one of five defined areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology: nanophysics, nanochemistry, nanoelectronics, biophysics or nanobiotechnology. The course aims to instil in its students the power to work, communicate and think across the boundaries of traditional scientific disciplines.Course duration Two years (120 ECTS)Brief DescriptionThe Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is a highly integrated programme, based on a jointly developed curriculum and composed of course modules that are fully recognized by all consortium partners. All students start the first year at the KU Leuven, where they follow a set of introductory courses to give them a common starting basis, a compulsory common block of core courses to give them the necessary multidisciplinary background of Nanoscience and nanotechnology, a selection of courses to provide some non-technical language and cultural skills, and already a profiling block of elective courses, which prepares them for their second year specialisation. In the second year the students select their specialization area (Nanophysics, Nanochemistry, Nanoelectronics, Biophysics or Bionanotechnology) and follow a compulsory set of specializing courses (15 ECTS), combined with a set of elective broadening courses (15 ECTS), and do their master thesis research project (30 ECTS). The Master's course has a strong link with many research groups in the partner universities as well as in the associated partner institutions. Career perspectivesGraduate students from the EMM-nano programme will be well prepared for both continued research in nanoscience for a PhD degree, and a non- academic career in the rapidly emerging nanotechnology industry. The EMM-nano graduates will also be part of the important and challenging task in the coming decades of bringing today's nanoscience into tomorrow's nanotechnology. An international experienceThe language of instruction is English.A number of EU-funded scholarships are offered to the best qualified candidates.DiplomaThe Course leads to a joint degree from the universities at which the student has studied.Website: www.emm-nano.org
