Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies


Presentation and goals

 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 ECTS) 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 ECTS) 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

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.
