The interdisciplinary research programs, jointly offered by three departments in the Faculty of Science and four in the Faculty of Engineering, provide students with a stimulating educational environment that spans from basic research through to application. The goal of the collaborative programs is to allow students to gain perspectives on nanotechnology from a wide community of scholars within and outside their disciplines in both course and thesis work. The MASc and MSc degree collaborative programs provide a strong foundation in the emerging areas of nano-science or nano-engineering in preparation for the workforce or for further graduate study and research leading to a doctoral degree.
You will learn how using quantum and statistical mechanics and thermodynamics of the very small, and arranging atoms and molecules in specific ways, leads to new materials or systems with remarkable functions. You will develop laboratory skills in the university's clean room and your final year project could be conducted in, and supervised by, the York-JEOL Nanocentre.
This official Master from Zaragoza University (Spain) has a duration of 18 months and comprises 75 ECTS credits. The course is suitable for graduates with science, engineering, medicine or related degrees keen to develop careers at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The course is multidisciplinary and aims to provide students with fundamental knowledge, practical experience, and skills in the fabrication and characterization of nanostructured materials and devices with applications in key areas of nanochemistry, nanophysics, and nanobiomedicine.
Objective of the degree is to create a strong research focus, with high achieving students, working in state-of-the-art research laboratories equipped with world class fabrication and characterisation resources.
