Nanoscience and nanotechnology are at the forefront of modern research. The fast growing economy in this area requires experts who have an outstanding knowledge of nanoscience in combination with the skills to apply this knowledge in new products. A multidisciplinary scientific education is crucial to provide industry and research institutes with top quality experts who have a generic background in the different subdisciplines such as electronics, physics, chemistry, material science, biotechnology, and at the same time be experts in one particular field. This is what is offered in this master programme.
The program at KU Leuven is strongly research-oriented. K.U.Leuven has a strong research component in the areas of nanoscience,nanotechnology,nanomaterials, nanoelectronics and bionanotechnology. The research in this area is done in the research groups of the three faculties at KU Leuven.
Deze master wordt onder de naam Master in de nanowetenschappen en de nanotechnologie ook aangeboden in het Nederlands.
