MSc in Advanced Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
University: Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB)
The master's degree in Advanced Nanoscience and Nanotechnology allows students to become familiar with the latest subjects, methodologies and facilities in research into Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, based on the knowledge previously acquired in the scientific and technological profile of the bachelor's degree.
The master's degree, consisting of 60 credits and with a duration of one year, is structured into three specialisations: Nanomaterials, Nanobiotechnology and Nanoelectronics. Lecturers are both from the UAB (Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Geology and Electronic Engineering) and from research institutes located on campus [Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), National Microelectronics Centre (CNM-CSIC), ALBA Synchrotron]. Lectures take place on afternoons, except in very specific situations.
This concentration of nanotechnology research institutes and groups at the Bellaterra Campus is one of the strongest in Southern Europe, and has made it possible for the UAB to be officially recognised as a Campus of International Excellence in Nanoscience and Biotechnology.
The master's degree offers a wide range of dissertation projects (TFM) in each of its specialisations. A representative list with the main lines of research offered by the institutes and departments that may participate in this 2022/23 academic year can be consulted under the section: Study guides - Master's Degree Dissertation.
