The Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois offers a degree program, the MSME with Certification in Micro and Nano Systems Engineering. The program is designed to serve students seeking a post-graduate degree and enhanced preparation for a career in the rapidly growing fields of nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing, and more specifically within the sub-discipline of micro-and nano-scale systems engineering.
The group of Prof William King designs, fabricates, and uses tools for thermal and thermomechanical processing at micrometer and nanometer length scales. Their research involves the use of atomic force microscopy (AFM) and nanoimprint lithography for thermal and thermomechanical modification of surfaces.
The Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Institute at The University of Iowa focuses on issues related to applications and implications of nanoscience and nanotechnology in environmental processes and human health, as well as the fundamental properties of nanomaterials.
Nano-biotechnology is to a considerable degree an interdisciplinary science: It combines physical laws, chemical procedures and biological principles on the nano-scale. That is exactly the goal of the ZFUW with this two-semester online programme. This unique offer in Germany combines the most modern educational devices and makes it possible to acquire high-level scientific knowledge.
The target group of this program is first and foremost professionals who are already working in industry, research institutes, universities and clinics, both nationally as well as abroad. The requirement for being admitted to this 3-year master program is a completed undergraduate course of studies in either engineering, science or medicine, taken at a university or polytechnic / university of applied science. Relevant working experience of at least one year has to be proven when applying for admission.
The REN group works on the forefront of Material Nanochemistry and Nanotechnology, including chemical design, synthesis and self-assembly of low-dimensional nanomaterials based on the bottom-up paradigm, with an emphasis on novel photonic, electronic, magnetic and excitonic properties for applications in efficient solar energy harvesting and magnetic energy storage.
The CFN (Center for Functional Nanostructures), located at the University of Karlsruhe (TH) and the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (Research Center Karlsruhe), is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to fundamental and applied research in some of the most fascinating fields in nanotechnology.
One of CINSaT's main characteristics is the broad interdisciplinary scope, participating disciplines ranging from physics, chemistry, biology and philosophy to mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering, including the Institute of Nanostructure Technology and Analytics (INA). Research of the center is accompanied by an interdisciplinary diploma course of studies Nanostructure and Molecular Science.
Within the Institute, a modern cleanroom up to class 1 exists, enabling the application of various modern nanostructure technologies, for example molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), ion beam deposition (IBD). Different other deposition technologies and etching processes in combination with optical and electron beam lithogrophy provide a key feature for the development of optoelectronic devices and nanosystem applications.
In 2 Jahren, wenn die ersten Bachelor Absolventen in den Nanostrukturwissenschaften zu erwarten sind, also im Wintersemester 2012/13 startet der Studiengang Master of Science Nanostrukturwissenschaften.
This Centre of Excellence for Basic Research in Nanoscale Physics and Applications is a multi-disciplinary research division at Faculty of Physics and Mathematics, University of Latvia. Seven groups of the Institute are studying the hottest topics of atomic/ molecular physics and atmospheric/stellar spectroscopy and developing new optical methods/devices for industrial, environmental and medical applications.
This unique course is focused directly on this interface between the fields of electronics and nanotechnology. It covers the foundations of electronic engineering, from communications systems through to computer engineering, integrated circuit design and micro/nano fabrication. It enables you to understand the principles of electronics and nanotechnology, in particular the principles of the fabrication and design of modern microelectronic products.
You will study key topics from all the core sciences - chemistry, biology, physics, material science and electronics - alongside specialist modules in nanoscience and nanotechnology. At the same time you will experience the fascination of nanotechnology via hands-on practical work with state-of-the-art nanoscience equipment.
Research done by participating members includes the mathematical and numerical modelling of MESFETs and HEMTs in Applied Mathematics, transport in amorphous Si and other disordered materials in Physics and Astronomy, the application of discotic liquid crystals to electronic and optical devices in the SOMS Centre, and FET and HBT modelling, terahertz interband quantum well lasers and electromagnetic field modelling of terahertz integrated waveguide structures in Electronic and Electrical Engineering.
The SOMS Centre is an interdisciplinary research centre where chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers seek to understand the science of molecular self-assembly and self-organisation, to engineer new functional exploitable materials and devices.
