Program Description

Master in Nanotechnology

Technical University of Ostrava

Branch Profile

The Master‘s Study Branch of Nanotechnology is the second level of nanotechnology study following upon Bachelor’s study. The study program contains more advanced methods of the structural and properties’ study of nanomaterials, theoretical and experimental approaches. During the first year of study, students may choose one of two orientations - physical or chemical. Both orientations have common fundamental theoretical and experimental subjects including modeling and computer design of nanomaterials.

Key Learning Outcomes

KNOWLEDGE

The aim of the master‘s study of Nanotechnology is to provide advanced education of characterization and properties of nanomaterials. Students extend their knowledge of mathematics, physics, and chemistry in specialized subjects as electron microscopy, magnetic and optic properties of nanomaterials. The program includes the study of the relationship between properties of nanomaterials and their structures and utility as well. Graduates will have gained detailed knowledge about modern methods of structure study (for example electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy etc.).

SKILLS

The graduates of Nanotechnology master‘s study can use specialized knowledge to solve practical problems. They can use advanced research methods in nanotechnology that allow them to obtain new information based on practice and theory.

GENERAL COMPETENCIES

Graduates are able to independently make responsible decisions to solve individual parts of a problem. They know how to solve practical problems with characterization and preparation of nanomaterials, can formulate the results of experiments and opinions of a research team in a report. They understand specialized literature and databases and can make use of this knowledge. Graduates are also able to present their knowledge and experience in a foreign language. Graduates have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates

The two-year study program includes advanced methods of assessment of structure and characteristics of nanomaterials, both theoretical and experimental. Theoretical subjects include the study of the electron structure, optical and magnetic characteristics and deal with the relationship of the nanomaterial characteristics and their functionality. Molecular modeling and computer design of nanomaterials is also a part of the program. Furthermore, the program includes advanced experimental methods of the structure and characteristics of the nanomaterials assessment (e.g. various types of microscopy, spectroscopic methods etc.) with sufficient ratio of the laboratory work in the laboratories equipped with modern apparatus. During studies, a student chooses one of two specializations (physical, chemical), differing in the way of manufacturing and characterization of the nanomaterial attributes.
