Welcome to the Master of Nanoscale Engineering in Lyon

The Master of Nanoscale Engineering: Your Guide to the Nano-World

Nanoscale objects exhibit many novel and extraordinary properties that are not found in their macroscopic counterparts. The ability to control matter at the nanoscale will therefore benefit all branches of engineering in the next decades, and well-known devices will acquire new features due to manufacturing processes that integrate nano-scale structures. Moreover, nanoscale engineering embodies the convergence of physics, electronics, life sciences and chemistry, and as such it provides ample opportunities to master the challenges of the future in fields as diverse as healthcare, sustainable development, energy efficiency, and many more.

The Master of Nanoscale Engineering offers you the opportunity to explore this challenging field in a stimulating scientific and cultural environment. The program is dedicated to a multidisciplinary and international approach and it is suited equally well for students planning an academic or an industrial career. The two-year curriculum provides both the theoretical basis and the practical expertise in all fields related to the fabrication, the characterization and the design of nanoscale structures and systems.
The most important facts at a glance:
scope two-year post-bachelor program in nanotechnology (120 ECTS)
multidisciplinary curriculum taught in English
degree Master of Science (for industrial or academic career)
eligibility Bachelor degree (180 ECTS) in a field of science or engineering
students with additional qualifications can apply to join the second year
fees about 500 € per year (including health insurance)

Thank you for your interest in our Master. You may want to start by having a look at our overview of the program. Further details are available on the curriculum and the application procedure, of course; we have furthermore collected some practical information and some media files (photos and a movie) that may be useful. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope that you enjoy your virtual visit and maybe we will soon meet you in real life as a new student...
