10 MSc Programs in Nanoscience

A master's degree allows students to pursue more advanced careers. Usually an undergraduate degree in a related field is required as a prerequisite, however. Taking an MSc is a great way to really focus your education on your eventual career.

You may be wondering, what is an MSc in Nanoscience? It may not sound like it, but it is actually a very wide field. Essentially, it deals with anything that is on the nano scale. It incorporates many elements from every area of the natural sciences. It usually focuses on the technology side of nanoscience, but strictly research focuses are possible as well. Students typically learn chemistry, mathematics, physics, molecular biology, and engineering, and students should decide what area they want to specialize in depending on their desired career.

Because of how varied the field is, mastering in nanoscience is very beneficial. It is possible to enter this field from many different undergraduate focuses, including virtually any type of science, medicine, engineering, mathematics, and more. This also means there are many choices for what you will work in upon graduation.

The costs of taking an MSc in Nanoscience vary. Every factor, including university of choice, country of study, and length of program will play a part in determining the investment cost. You should consider many different schools to find the one that matches your needs.

The future is always moving toward smaller and smaller technologies, so the demand for professionals in nanoscience is always growing. Coupled with the fact that there are many different areas one can work in, there are plentiful opportunities for careers in this field. The most common career for graduates is in biomedical engineering, which provides unique and very fulfilling work. It is also possible to work in material science, chemical engineering, and more.

Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field at the border between physics, chemistry, and biochemistry. The manipulation of matter on the nanoscale (~10nm) offers new opportunities to solve scientific challenges in the modern world.

The Nanoscience program in Groningen works with small groups of students, training them to perform cutting edge research in this highly challenging field. The application of nanoscience to solve problems in today's society requires the fundamental understanding of the interplay between physical, chemical, and some times biological processes. Questions that can be addressed in the field of nanoscience include: Can we build 100x cheaper solar cells? Can we make a computer working similarly to the brain? Can we control quantum properties on the nanoscale for useful applications? Can we make computers using spin instead of electrons?... [-]
