Nano scale, mega impact: The University of Tsukuba’s Nanoscience course offers big insights into small materials. 


We offer a master degree in Nanoscience at the University of Tsukuba. From the iridescent beauty of a butterfly’s wings to the Spiderman-like ‘stickability’ of a gecko’s feet, many phenomena in the natural world arise from physical properties that operate on the scale of nanometers.

In modern science, the fields of nanotechnology and nanoscience build on these kinds of natural effects to generate remarkable innovation and fast-paced technological development in fields as diverse as biomedical imaging, renewable energy and quantum computing. Indeed, nanoscience has emerged as a multidisciplinary field that is distinct from the related disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and materials engineering and thus requires specifically trained professionals.

Programme Structure

  • The University of Tsukuba has developed a Nanoscience Masters course aimed at training the next generation of ‘nano’ practitioners. The program consists of coursework and a research component. 
  • Students are expected to complete three compulsory subjects, six core elective subjects and 11 specialized subjects as well as conduct an original research project, within the two-year duration of the course. This course aims to instill graduates with three broad attributes — theoretical competence, practical capability and research experience.
  • The theoretical subjects include quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, semiconductor science, X-ray and solid-state physics. The engineering-based subjects combine practical insights into optics, nanoelectronics, nanomaterials, semiconductors, solids and surface engineering with hands-on experience through courses on characterization techniques like transmission electron microscopy.
