Nanotechnology focuses on the
design and creation of functional materials, structures, devices and systems by
directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale. Nanotechnology
is an interdisciplinary field specializing in structures ranging from 1 to 100
nanometres in size, a world where the physical and chemical properties of
materials undergo quantitative and qualitative changes. Nanomaterials and their
specific properties can be used for a wide range of applications and
incorporated into larger assemblies, systems and architectures.
This exciting new field brings together traditional disciplines such as applied
physics, chemical engineering, biology and electrical engineering. The
interdisciplinary Master’s programme reflects this in its emphasis on
Nanotechnology has major implications for the world around us: from new solar
cells and energy innovations to breakthroughs in medical diagnosis. Nanomaterials
offer an inexpensive and readily available resource with the potential to
improve all our lives.
The programme of the University of Twente in nanotechnology is the only
nanotechnology Master’s programme in the Netherlands. It offers you access to
world-class labs and state-of-the-art facilities. You will receive personal
guidance throughout the programme and benefit from a thorough academic training
that covers everything from research skills to setting up a business. Want to
