Bachelor's Degree Nanotechnology

General information

Educational centre


Nanoscience and nanotechnology are expected to give rise to innovative solutions to many of today's society's problems in fields like communications technologies, energy production and storage, new materials, nanometric-scale industrial production, new instruments to solve scientific problems, food technology, water and environmental technologies and security. There is therefore a need for suitably-trained professionals for this new and expanding sector.

This degree teaches the basic concepts, principles, theories and facts related to nanoscience and nanotechnology, and how to apply them to problem-solving. Students learn to synthesise, characterise and study the properties of materials at the nano-scale, to handle test-laboratory equipment for studying nano-scale phenomena, and to interpret data from experiments.

They also learn to apply general laboratory operation and safety regulations and specific ones for handling chemical and biological instruments and materials. In addition, they are trained to evaluate accurately the risks of health, socioeconomic and environmental impacts that chemical substances and nanomaterials pose.

The degree also covers intellectual property laws in the context of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and the corresponding terminology in English.
