Applications for UGA Master's in Nanosciences Now Open
The Université Grenoble Alpes’s multidisciplinary master’s program in nanosciences and nanotechnology is now taking applications.
The two-year program is a result of collaboration with 7 international partners in 5 countries, and has received prestigious funding from Europe’s Erasmus Mundus program.

Advanced training in a cutting edge field

The program is organized in two years; the first year provides a comprehensive training in the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and nanosciences. Second year students then choose a specialty for in-depth training and hands-on training in a 4-5 month internship in a research laboratory.

Depending on their background, qualified students may enroll either in both years, or pass directly to year two work in the specialization of their choice.

The program provides rigorous preparation for those hoping to go on to research doctoral programs, practical doctoral programs, or to a non-academic career in the rapidly emerging nanotechnology industry.

An international partnership

The program curriculum has been developed in collaboration by 5 universities and 3 research institutes in 5 European countries. Students benefit from this international expertise, acquiring in depth skills in nanosciences as well as general skills in scientific disciplines. The program aims to instill habits of thought and practice that will allow students to work, communicate, and think across the boundaries of traditional scientific disciplines.

The program also has strong ties to the many research groups at the partner universities and the associated research institutes.

Project partners:

  • Katolieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) – Project coordinator
  • Technische Universität Dresden (Germany)
  • Université Grenoble Alpes (France)
  • Universitat de Barcelona (Spain)
  • Chalmers Tekniska Högskola AB (Sweden)
  • Interuniversitair micro-electronicacentrum IMEC (Belgium)
  • Leibniz Institut für Festkörper une werkstofforschung (Germany)
  • Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (France)

Europe’s Erasmus Mundus Program

Funded by the European Commission, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degrees are prestigious, integrated, international study programs, delivering a joint degree from a consortium of higher education institutions. These programs provide an excellent way for students to internationalize their education and training, as well as a means to benefit from subject matter expertise in several different institutions.

Students in the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology master’s program will receive a joint degree from the two universities at which they have studied.
