Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
The Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the University of Siegen is a two-year 120 ECTS English language degree program offered to national and international students. It focuses on modern aspects of the science and technology of nanoscopic systems, ranging from basic knowledge to applications and devices. It consists of a set of lectures, seminars and lab courses followed by a project in a research group, accomplished by a thesis. The master is a joint initiative of the Departments of Physics, Chemistry and Electrical Engineering of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology.
The master program leads to the acquisition of analytical and methodological competences in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with in-depth education and training in physics, chemistry and engineering, yet from an interdisciplinary perspective. Graduates are thus prepared for conducting research in academia and industry, but also to a career in service and consulting companies. Moreover, the master degree qualifies students for a PhD program. In particular, the interdisciplinary character of the course enables them to investigate topics at the interface of physics, chemistry and engineering.
The master program is designed to bridge the Departments of Physics, Chemistry and Engineering, which together cover the entire spectrum of nanoscience and nanotechnology in Siegen. The course not only strengthens education and training in these subjects, but it also provides new opportunities for competitive research.
