Coordinating University:University of Santiago de CompostelaParticipating universities:University of VigogoalsOffer postgraduate training in an emerging multidisciplinary field in which the Galician university system does not have a specific degree despite the international recognition of researchers in our Autonomous Community in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Contribute to responding to the real demand for graduates in scientific and technical careers seeking training in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Contribute to meeting the needs of highly qualified personnel in nanotechnology raised by technology-based companies that carry out their activity in our environment.Basic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research contextThat the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:
The Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology does not include specialties, but it does offer two itineraries that can help to configure the student's preferences:Itinerary oriented to training in Nanomaterial Technology, which covers computational simulation, nanoelectronics, nanomagnetism, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, and nanocatalysis.
Itinerary oriented to training in Bio-Nanotechnology, which includes computational modeling of biomaterials, nanotherapy, prevention, diagnosis, nanoteranosis (nanoteragnostic), nanofabrication and tissue regeneration, nanotoxicology and ecotoxicology.To obtain the degree through an itinerary, the student must take the 18 optional credits of the corresponding module. You can also obtain the degree without itinerary if you prefer to choose subjects from the two modules based on your interests.
Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasThe Master provides the complementary knowledge necessary for graduates to be integrated into highly competitive work groups dedicated to research, continuing education, and / or regulation in nanoscience and nanotechnology. It must put the graduate in conditions both to continue their training by joining a PhD program and to facilitate access to the labor market, both in the public and private sectors.
As part of its training activities, the Master includes external internships in public and private technology and health centers and in the technology-based productive sector, which should help the student develop skills and abilities that prepare them to face the demands of different working environments in real conditions.
There is a real demand for specialists in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in public or private research centers, health institutions, companies with a high technological component, and regulatory bodies. This demand for training is not covered by any of the universities of the Galician University System (SUG) or by other universities in the immediate surroundings of the Autonomous Community of Galicia.
