The purpose of this Microsystems and Nanodevices program at National Technical University of Athens is to educate new scientists in the subject area of Microsystems and nanotechnology. Tremendous developments have taken place in this subject area during the recent years and even more intense ones are expected to appear in the years to come.


Microsystems? fabrication is quite similar to that of the integrated circuits and it is based on the so called batch fabrication. Batch fabrication is considered as a key point in the development of classical microelectronics.

Microsystems applications range from health and medicine to environment, energy systems, and telecommunications. Conventionally, one can speak of nanotechnology when the dimensions of the components of a microsystem fall below 100nm. Although nanotechnology covers a wide range of diverse activities the present postgraduate course gives emphasis to the transition area between Microsystems and nanotechnology and its applications to microelectronics and sensor design, fabrication and testing.


The above stated aim is fulfilled via the following objectives. The Microsystems and Nanodevices program at National Technical University of Athens will offer:

  • High quality education in contemporary scientific and technological issues related to Microsystems and Nanotechnology, through ordinary classes and seminars
  • Knowledge on how to conduct a research, through a supervised research project
  • Acquisition of skills and knowledge on technological issues, through lab sessions
  • Preparation of the students in order to become attractive to the Greek and European industry on Microsystems and/or Nanotechnology or to continue by doing research in an academic environment

Other requirements

General requirements

The postgraduate program Microsystems and Nanodevices, is intended to attract students who have completed (or they are close to the completion of) their undergraduate studies in physical sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Materials), electrical, mechanical or chemical engineering, as well as in other related areas. The design of the program aims to bridge the gap between the different postgraduate studies and the level of knowledge necessary to understand the structure and the properties of the low-dimensional materials, devices and systems and prepare the graduate students for employment at the industry of Microsystems and nanotechnology or doing research in this subject area
