Curriculum Nano-physics and quantum technologies

The curriculum

Experimental skills allow to design and run experiments, manage state-of-the-art instrumentation, extract essential information from raw data, discern fundamental laws as well as devise novel devices. This curriculum offers two “flavours” in the most advanced fields of Nano- and Quantum-Science and related technologies. Each of these profiles is largely requested in both academic and industrial environments.

You will to be trained on advanced experimental and investigation methods, in relation with current scientific topics such as nanostructured materials, 2D-materials, thin layers, materials for energy, quantum sensing, just to mention a few. The curriculum is designed to offer a solid base of knowledge to realize a MS thesis in state of the art experimental research laboratories. This will constitute an ideal background to undertake an international doctoral program, as well as to enter the job market.

You can choose from a vast list of elective courses to design your personal study plan and specialize in a specific area. You can also choose two courses from another curriculum to complete your professional preparation, with no restriction. Here are some suggested study plans for this curriculum
