Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

General Information


This doctoral programme has the Mention towards Excellence (MEE2011-0370) granted by the General Secretariat of Universities of the Ministry of Education according to Resolution of October 6, 2011. In recent years, certain scientific areas, such as supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, surface physics and low temperatures have reached a remarkable development in our country. Research groups have been formed that have achieved an excellent competitive position in the international area. In addition, in a natural way, the very object of research of these disciplines has been converging towards what is called Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Of the strategic importance in R & D of these areas, it is worth noting that these have been prioritized in all the National, European and International Programmes of all the developed countries. In these physical areas, chemists, biologists, physicians and engineers are concerned with obtaining, manipulating, organizing, studying and taking advantage of the properties of objects of nanometric size. To maintain a truly competitive international position in some areas of Nanoscience today, however, requires a level of competence that can only be attainable with a thematic focus and adequate training of research personnel to enable them to acquire the multidisciplinary knowledge that these areas need
