MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM IN ADVANCED MATERIALS AND NANOTECHNOLOGY (AM&N) (100% in English)
WHAT IS MATERIALS SCIENCE AND NANOTECHNOLOGY?
The famous talk entitled “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” by renowned theoretical physicist Richard Feynman seeded the concept of nanotechnology in 1959 during an American Physical Society meeting at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), which was long before the term "nanotechnology" was used. Inspired by this talk, many researchers from various disciplines started exploring the possibility of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale, which has evolved a new interdisciplinary research area called "Materials Science and Nanotechnology Engineering"....
Nanobiotechnology is a very recent and fascinating area of activity and research, which may be called the "Fundamental Technology of the 21st Century". Several potential
Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary science to a large extent. It combines the laws of physics, chemical processes and biological principles with one another at the nanoscale level. The high level of interdisciplinarity leads to the necessity that scientists need to acquire additional skills and knowledge, for example in the fields of characterization techniques, nanooptics, nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and biotechnology.
This course is held entirely in English – therefore good English language skills are a necessity.
