In the coming decades, nanoscience and nanotechnology will undoubtedly become the driving force for a new set of products, systems, and applications. They are even expected to become the basis for a new industrial revolution.
Within a few years, nanoscience applications are expected to have an impact on virtually every technological sector and ultimately many aspects of our daily life. In the coming five to ten years, many new products and companies will emerge based on nanotechnology and nanosciences. These new products will stem from the knowledge developed at the interface of the various scientific disciplines offered in this Master’s programme.
As a result, the students who graduate as masters of nanoscience and nanotechnology will be joining companies developing these new technologies. The graduates will be able to go into R&D as well as industry. In the coming years, there will be a strong need for scientists and engineers whose expertise is precisely at the interface of these various disciplines, and these engineers will end up in jobs directly aligned to the education provided in this Master’s programme. You will be employed by companies in the electronics sector, new and smart material industry, chemical technology, and biotechnology companies. As a graduate of the programme, you will have an ideal background to become the interface between experts in all these disciplines and you will be able to use your broad perspective of nanotechnology to develop and create new products or even start up completely new companies. With your basic education, you may also end up in R&D (research & development), product design or product development, or you can become an independent consultant.
