Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering, newborn scientific disciplines are situated at the interface of physics, chemistry, materials science, microelectronics, biochemistry and biotechnology. Consequently, control of the discipline requires an academic and multidisciplinary scientific education. You will learn the basics of physics, biology and chemistry on the nanometer scale and the use of nanotechnologies for systems and sensors on the macro-scale.
The Nanoscience, Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering programme at KU Leuven is both strongly application and research oriented, and is closely linked to the research centres of global leaders such as IMEC, the Leuven Nanocenter and INPAC (Institute for Nanoscale Physics and Chemistry) at the Faculty of Science.
In the coming five-to-ten years, many new products and companies will emerge based on nanotechnology and nanosciences. These new products will stem from the knowledge developed at the interface of the various scientific disciplines offered in this Master's programme.
Thus, graduates will find a wealth of career opportunities in the sectors and industries developing these new technologies: electronics, new and smart materials, chemical technology, biotechnology, R&D, independent consultancies and more. The Master’s programme is designed to equip you with the ideal profile to enter the workplace as an invaluable interface between these emergent industries, able to apply your expertise to the development of new products or even new companies.
