In this programme, you will acquire knowledge in fundamental physics, material sciences, nanosciences and computational methods. Moreover, you will gain various competencies through the advanced practicals and workshops proposed within the programme, all beneficial for your future professional activities.
This Master of Science programme is built upon the following standpoints:
Progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology can only be made after a detailed understanding of underlying fundamental nanophysics.
Proper training in nanophysics, preparatory for R&D work in nanotechnology, requires a period of two years.
Proper training in nanophysics demands access to different visions and different approaches even within the same topics.
To comprise the above goals, our courses in fundamental nanophysics and its applications in material science are organised in a full, two-year master programme, in collaboration with several other scientific institutions.
All the acquired competencies in the Master will contribute to the easy integration of the graduates in the academic world, the European R&D base, as well as in the private job market. A large fraction of our graduates continue their education in a PhD programme, but many of them also find careers in private companies (as scientists, engineers or managers) and teaching institutions.
Why choose UAntwerp?
“After finishing my Bachelor’s studies at the University of Belgrade, I decided to enrol in a Master’s programme abroad. It was my aspiration to experience life outside my country and with a Master’s programme, I could do that while obtaining a university diploma, which seemed like a win-win situation. I found out that the University of Antwerp has one of the most productive groups and finest experts in the field of graphene research, a topic that really interests me. With my Master’s diploma, I acquired knowledge in different fields of physics. The courses provide a deeper insight into the physical processes on the nanoscale, molecular, and atomic level. Students are always welcome to ask professors for additional clarifications of the lectures, course material or discuss any other matter. In my experience, professors go the extra mile when dealing with international students.”
