Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies



 The track  "Nanophysics, Nanostructures" offers fundamental and applied courses in nanosciences, nano-physics and nano-instrumentation.

 This track is opened to international students. All courses are given in english.

 The curriculum contains:

  • general courses corresponding to 12 ECTS, among which 6 devoted to the study of a foreign language
  • transverse courses in nanosciences  and nanotechnologies (15 credits) with a large focus on experimental teaching and projects on the cleanrooms and facilities of the Grenoble area
  • specific courses in nano-physics, (30 ECTS spread over the two years)
  • elective courses (33 credits) for further specialization or opening in nanosciences 
  • internships in research teams, 8 weeks the 1st year and 5 months the 2nd year, for preparing the master thesis.

For more informations on this track:

The objective of the nano-physics track in the Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies master program is to provide students with a strong background in general sciences, and a specialization in physics at nano-scale and nano-instrumentation.

 This track offers two main professional perspectives:  

  • continue in research with a PhD in physics,  nanosciences and nanotechnologies, in France or abroad,
  • become a research and development engineer in industry, where the strong background in general science will be appreciated.




Formation tournée vers l’international

This track is affiliated to the Erasmus Plus programm EMM Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. EMM Nano students join the nano-physics track in the 2nd year.
