Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Nanobiosciences

Presentation and goals

 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 include 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 nanosciences facilities of the Grenoble area
  • Specific courses in nano-biosciences, (30 ECTS spread over the two years)
  • Elective courses (totalizing 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

The main objective of this track is to provide students with strong scientific and technical knowledge in micro- and nano-fabrication, manipulation, measurement and instrumentation at the nano-scale. This include among other, the functionnalization of surfaces, the manipulation of single cells, the use of optical techniques for observation and manipulation of single bio-molecules, etc... The program provides students with strong basis in biology, allowing them  to pursue ambitious projects at the interface between biology and nano-technologies.

 This track offers two main perspectives:

  • Continue with a PhD, in France or abroad. The interdisciplinar character of this track leads to a wide variety of domains, ranging from nanotechnologies in biophysics, to subjects more oriented toward biology or health engineering
  • Become an engineer in a company or an organism, in the domain of nanotechnologies, biosciences, health engineering, regenerative medecine and/or biotechnologies

International dimension :

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

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