Micro and Nanotechnology is an emerging area of science and technology, with developments and innovations that are radically changing our lives and the different aspects of the same. Their pervasiveness and cross-disciplinary application is absolute, since there is no scientific or technical field that does not benefit from them.
Expectations and future potential are even greater, thanks to the continuous deepening of knowledge about physical phenomena at the nanoscale, materials and their properties, and finally on the technologies for their processing and exploitation in devices.
Therefore, the application areas and the job opportunities for a graduate in Nanotechnology for ICT from Politecnico di Torino are extremely diversified and typically associated to companies or research centers operating at the highest international levels in terms of innovation.
All the of the BSc-level degree programmes of the III School of Engineering (except for Cinema Engineering and above all Physics Engineering ) provide an adequate curriculum for subsequent enrolment in the MSc programme in Nanotechnologies for ICTs. This MSc degree was the first to be activated in Italy on the important topic of nanotechnologies for information and communication technology (ICT), widely applied to complex engineering problems of various types.
This field is destined to occupy an increasing part of development and production activities in the advanced technologies sectors, and brings an increasing degree of innovation in contemporary society.
The Nanotechnologies for ICTs programme at Politecnico di Torino are all held in English and provide two different elective curriculums: the first is taught entirely on the Torino campus, while in the second a limited number of students also study at two other polytechnic institutes: the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
For both orientations, the curriculum provides important contributions in the field of advanced electronics and numerical analysis, as well as solid training in all areas of interest in nanotechnologies specialization.
