Nano-materials

Historically, the development and advancement of industry and technologies are tightly bounded to breakthroughs in materials science to meet critical future-security imperatives. New advanced materials with tailor-made properties are vital elements of providing previously developed systems and technologies with new capabilities or establishing completely emerging technologies, examples of which are nano-robotics, quantum technologies, wearable devices, energy conversion devices, organic electronics, biotechnology, etc.

One of the recent breakthroughs has occurred by the emergence of nano-scaled systems. There, the low dimensionality and the dominance of surfacial and quantum effects of matter has resulted in the emergence of novel properties for conventional materials. Low dimensionality is achieved via material processing through chemical and physical routes in which numerical simulations and intelligent calculations play an essential role. A wide range of applications are being explored for these nanometric systems and their hybrids.

In this regard “Nanomaterials” interdisciplinary post-graduate program is aimed to combine knowledge and experiences from applied natural sciences and engineering, in order to prepare students for future activities in designing and fabricating materials in very small dimensions for applications in various fields of technology. Within the frame of this program the students will be exposed to a considerably large list of courses mainly in the field of materials science but also including the underlying science of the phenomena governing the physical and chemical properties of these systems, their potential applications in different technological domains, various processing and engineering routes, experimental and theoretical techniques to predict, determine and analyze their properties, the environmental and health considerations and the economical aspects of their inclusion in industry and market.

The program is offered in English language by faculty members and adjunct faculty members with international research and teaching experiences in the world’s top ranked universities. The students have access to the most advanced laboratory, computational and industrial equipment available both in the institution as well as in its collaborators’ facilities. Within the frame of this international master the qualified students will benefit from exchange and joint research projects and the corresponding grants and scholarships for staying in our partner international research centers.

After graduation, the students can either follow their studies to higher grades with the support of the department (financial and administrative) or enter the research and development units such as research units in the department. Moreover, those students who achieve products or specific technological solutions during their studies and look forward to commercializing their products are granted investment and acceleration facilities.
