Nanomaterials are found in the center of contemporary technological evolution that has direct impacts on the daily life of human beings. This 2-years master's program of Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology at USTH is designed with aims to provide depth knowledge (both academia and practical knowledge) to students about all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
With proposed courses ranging from the foundation of materials to current trends in research & development of advanced functional materials together with courses dealing with management, production quality control, etc, students are trained to be ready for the next step of their academic career (Ph.D. preparation) or for working in an industrial environment with the position such as technical assistant or Research & Development engineer. Indeed, most of our master's students received PhD scholarships from reputed institutions in France, the USA, or other countries after graduation.
Students are enrolled both at the USTH and at a French partner university. In the second year (Master 2), the top 10% of students will be granted a six (6)-month internship in France. All graduated students will be awarded a double degree from a French university and USTH.
This master program of Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology is proposed and ensured by French partners within the USTH consortium (http://www.consortium-usth.org/).
