Eindhoven University of Technology

Master Postgraduate Eindhoven

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary New technologies enable scientists to address atoms and molecules and place them in any desired position. This master focuses on the control of materials on an ultimately small (nanometer) scale.
Course description The Master's track in Nano-Engineering forms part of the joint activities in the field of Nanoscience and Technology of TU/e and the Radboud University Nijmegen. These activities focus on the nano-engineering of functional materials. The track focuses on a combination of physics and chemistry. It features research on a wide range of materials, such as organic macromolecular systems, polymers, semiconductors, oxides, and metals. This spans the entire 'chain of knowledge', from fundamental theories and experiments, right up to analyzing, constructing, and manipulating structures on a nanometer scale. An important characteristic of track in is the fact that the track is strongly focused on building bridges between fundamental science and technological applications. This is made possible by the strong contacts that the department maintains with high-tech companies in the Eindhoven region and beyond. The interdisciplinary character of nanotechnology is expressed by the partnerships between different departments and even universities. As a specialist you learn to communicate with other disciplines, and to be inspired by them!
Study subjects The Master's track Nano-engineering lasts two years. Each year consists of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). Formally this programme is part of the master program Applied Physics. Although the students will generally be assigned a host institute, some compulsory elements (incidental events, research schools, specialization modules) are provided, and mobility of students for their research project(s) will be stimulated. Courses provided by the two host institutes are fully approved.
Course objectives Nanoscience & Technology focuses on the control of materials on a small (nanometer)scale. It involves emerging technologies that enable scientists to address individual atoms and molecules and to place them in any desired position. Working in this domain means crossing the boundaries between classical disciplines such as physics and chemistry. In this work, scientists and technologists enter a world in which they are confronted by new electrical, optical and magnetic properties of materials.

In short, the following rules apply:

  • The “EU/EEA rate” is the regular fee for students from within the EU/EEA.
  • The “non-EU/EEA rate” is the rate for students from outside the EU/EEA.
  • The “institutional rate” is for all students who have already obtained a bachelor’s or master’s degree and who want to start a second programme leading to a degree at the same level or at a lower level.
  • Note that FT, PT and D stand for "full-time", "part-time" and "dual", respectively.

Make sure you contact your institution to find out what rate applies to you. The rates listed here are estimates.
