Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Nanochemistry 1st and 2nd year

Presentation and goals

The course offers disciplinary training focused on development and characterization at the nanometric scale with a strong multidisciplinary dimension (physics, soft matter, biology). It relies on research units working in this field, in particular in relation to the Fondation Nanosciences de Grenoble.

It provides students with skills in the development, manipulation, characterization, understanding and exploitation of nano-systems, nano-materials, nano-structures and unique molecules, as well as knowledge of their application potentials. It makes students aware of the environmental and societal challenges of nanotechnologies.

The course is open to an international audience. All lessons are held in English during both years.

The program is structured as follows :

  • A common program with Lab sessions on platforms dedicated to nanosciences
  • Specific modules in nanochemistry
  • Elective modules for more in-depth study and/or towards sister disciplines
  • Two full-time internships in a research laboratory, 8 weeks during the 1st year and 5 months during the 2nd year. Part-time research activity may be undertaken during the teaching period.

International dimension :

Internationally-oriented programmes, Double degrees, joint degrees, Erasmus Mundus

Grenoble is a world-renowned competitiveness cluster in the field of nanotechnologies. Students can realise the international dimension of nanosciences and nanotechnologies, through international partnerships with universities and collaborations with numerous laboratories. Internships abroad are possible and encouraged. This program is part of the Erasmus+ Mundus Master (EMM) consortium in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies. The EMM Nano students join the nanochemistry program in the second year.
