Departement of Quantum Materials, Energies, and Technologies

For the first time in Iran, an international master program is offered by Khatam University with the aim of establishing a technological infrastructure on the frontiers of science. This multi-disciplinary program, entitled “Quantum Materials, Energies, and Technologies (QMET)” is mainly focused on experimental and industrial aspects of the applied sciences and emergent technologies.
QMET program is offered in English language throught three minors, namely:

  1.     Advanced Materials
  2.     Emergent Energies Technology
  3.     Quantum Science and Technology

The courses are presented in collaboration with the most prestigious institutions of the world. Students, Will have access to the most advanced experiment facilities and they will have the opportunity to take part and integrate in the research and industrial development community of the country after their graduation. In addition, the students presenting sufficient requirements and points shall benefit from scholarships dedicated to this program.
