The Master of Research in Nanotechnology is full-time. Lectures take place from Monday to Friday in the mornings. Laboratory practices area carried out during weekdays.

The postgraduate programme has two mentions in:

  • Nanomaterials
  • Nanomedicine


Master of Research in Nanotechnology with mention in Nanomaterials

Master of Research in Nanotechnology with mention in Nanomedicine

Master’s Objective:

To train outstanding, creative and critical thinking researchers to participate in scientific and technological developments, generate and disseminate knowledge in the areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Entry requirements:

To be admitted as a student of the Master’s Degree in Nanotechnology, the applicant must have a third level degree in physics, chemistry, biology, electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science engineering, biotechnology engineering, pharmaceutics and other equivalents, obtained at a university, polytechnic or college, legally recognized in their own countries.

Students who are enroled in their last year of undergraduate education might be admitted to the master’s programme, only if their degree is awarded before starting the course.

Graduate’s Profile:

Graduates will have the possibility to continue their Ph.D. studies in prestigious universities around the world or they will be able to work in research groups in distinguished national and international centres.

Programme Modules:

Between 80% and 90% of our teachers, are associated with our ESPE’s Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Centre and the remaing are either members of the Bar Ilan University, PUC-Rio, The National Polytechnic Institute or national professors with PhD.
