The master's programme Nanomaterials Science offers students a solid theoretical basis in the field of nanomaterials and develops the experimental skills needed to carry out high-level research. The programme (120 EC) consists of lectures (50%) and a research project (50%), that is executed in one of the research groups of the institute or (partially) in one of the partner groups outside the institute.
The combined talents and expertise of physics and chemists are very important for success in the science of condensed matter and nanomaterials, the focus of this program. Inspiring challenges in this science area include:
- The synthesis of functional units and the manipulation of these new 'artificial' solids;
- The study of fundamental processes in (Nano) structure systems and the development of theory and models to explain new phenomena;
- Explaining relationships between structures and properties;
- Materials Engineering and the application of materials in improved and new equipment.
