In partnership with the International Association of Nanotechnology, the Institute has received funding by a grant from United States Department of Labor to develop curriculum and provide technical training programs to business executives, professional managers and dislocated workers in nanotechnology.
This concentration allows students to study atoms and molecules used to create computer chips and other devices that are the size of a few nanometres - thousands of times smaller than current technology permits. Such discoveries will be useful in a number of fields, including aerospace, medicine, and electronics.
At Carleton, you will examine nanoscience through the disciplines of physical chemistry and electrical engineering to understand the physical, chemical and electronic characteristics of matter in this size regime. The combination of these two areas of study will equip you to fully understand nanoscience in photonic, electronic, energy and communication technologies. The focus of the program will be on materials - their use in electronic devices, their scalability and control of their properties.

The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored to students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both regarding the fundamentals of nanoscience and how to design and build components on the nanoscale.
The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology offers a new, 4-semester international master's programme in Micro and Nano Systems. The programme provides world-class, future-oriented education in design, manufacturing, characterization and integration of miniaturized components into engineering systems.
Your program will include three semesters at CVTC, where you'll have a rare opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment in specially designed facilities, such as the atomic force and scanning electron microscopes and Class 100 cleanroom. Your fourth semester will be a capstone experience at CVTC and another area institution. You'll also complete an internship to gain workplace experience.
This course is suitable for graduates with science, engineering or related degrees keen to develop careers at the cutting edge of micro-engineering; or graduates currently working in industry keen to extend their qualifications; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.
