EMM Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Four leading educational institutions in Europe offer a joint Erasmus Mundus Master of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (EMM-Nano). The programme offered is a truly integrated one, with a strong research backbone and a very important international outreach. The objective of this course is to provide top quality multidisciplinary education in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The EMM-nano is a two-year, 120 ECTS, English language degree programme. Thanks to its combination of partners, expertise and courses, it offers you a unique integrated master programme, covering all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology, while at the same time allowing you to design an individual study programme with specialization in essentially any field of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
It facilitates studying at two separate participating universities where you spend one year per country. It is strongly multidisciplinary: you receive a basic training in all the disciplines offered, one of which becomes your area of specialisation. At the end of the program you will receive a joint degree from the two universities where you studied.
The fast evolution of the field requires a strong consortium with noted educational experience in the field.
The educational partner institutions are
- Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven),Belgium (Coordinator)
- Chalmers Tekniska Högskola (Chalmers), Sweden
- Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble, France
- Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden), Germany
The course is organized with the support of three associated research partners:
- IMEC in Leuven (Belgium)
- CEA-LETI in Grenoble (France)
- Leibniz Institute for Solid State Materials Research in Dresden (Germany)
These institutions provide access to world-class infrastructure for nanotechnology research and development as well as opportunities for graduating students to continue their studies with a PhD. This strong link between education and research ensures a contemporary programme at the cutting edge of state-of-the-art research.
