The objective of this Master is to prepare students in the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology fields in order to be able to carry out a professional career in this area or a research activity leading to a doctoral thesis. This Master encompasses several disciplines: chemistry, physics, engineering, materials science, biochemistry, pharmacy and medicine.
The syllabus of the Master is somewhere in between the Nanoscience/Nanotechnology fields and the molecular systems. Therefore, it explores scientific areas of increasing interest such as Molecular Electronics, Molecular Magnetism, Supramolecular Chemistry, Surfaces Chemistry or Molecular Materials Science.
The interuniversity master has two basic goals:
a) To lay down a national excellence standard in Molecular Science to empower students to research in this area or for them to gain useful knowledge and skills to be able to develop a career in high technology companies.
b) To create a multidisciplinary and competitive scientific community in Spain to research in these subjects. In this respect, the master is a suitable framework for the promotion of mobility and interaction between students from different scientific areas and contacts with other universities, research centres and companies operating in this area.
On completion of the course, students will be trained, on a multidisciplinary basis, in chemical aspects related with nanoscience (nanoscience bottom-up approach for the design of functional molecules and supramolecular structures; intermolecular interactions; molecular self-assembly and self-organisation) and in physical ones (nanomanufacturing top-down approach, physical manipulation techniques, organisation and characterisation of nanomaterials).
They will also learn to address scientific problems from the perspective of Materials Science. Lastly, they will have an overview of the impact of nanoscience on other scientific and technological areas such as electronics, chemistry, biomedicine, or materials science.
