Program description

New technologies enable scientists to address atoms and molecules and place them in any desired position. This master focuses on the control of materials on an ultimately small (nanometer) scale.

The Master’s track in Nano-Engineering forms part of the joint activities in the field of Nanoscience and Technology of TU/e and the Radboud University Nijmegen. These activities focus on the nano-engineering of functional materials. The track focuses on a combination of physics and chemistry. It features research on a wide range of materials, such as organic macromolecular systems, polymers, semiconductors, oxides, and metals. This spans the entire ‘chain of knowledge’, from fundamental theories and experiments, right up to analyzing, constructing, and manipulating structures on a nanometer scale.

Nano-Engineering Curriculum

An important characteristic of track in is the fact that the track is strongly focused on building bridges between fundamental science and technological applications. This is made possible by the strong contacts that the department maintains with high-tech companies in the Eindhoven region and beyond. The interdisciplinary character of nanotechnology is expressed by the partnerships between different departments and even universities. As a specialist you learn to communicate with other disciplines, and to be inspired by them!

The Nano-Engineering course is part of the Applied Physics program and gives you the opportunity to get involved in physical phenomena, new technologies and measurement methods. These are based on technical applications of physical principles in the most diverse disciplines.

Nano Engineering consists, to a large extent, of internships, so that you will learn how to apply your technical and scientific knowledge in a research environment. The Applied Physics department opts for an integrated approach to teaching and research at an internationally competitive level.

The Master's track Nano-engineering lasts two years. Each year consists of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). Formally this programme is part of the master program Applied Physics. Although the students will generally be assigned a host institute, some compulsory elements (incidental events, research schools, specialization modules) are provided, and mobility of students for their research project(s) will be stimulated. Courses provided by the two host institutes are fully approved.

Nanoscience & Technology focuses on the control of materials on a small (nanometer)scale. It involves emerging technologies that enable scientists to address individual atoms and molecules and to place them in any desired position. Working in this domain means crossing the boundaries between classical disciplines such as physics and chemistry. In this work, scientists and technologists enter a world in which they are confronted by new electrical, optical and magnetic properties of materials.
