Molecular Nano-science and Nano-Technology (Joint degree)

Sciences

This Master is designed to train students in the field of Nano-Science and Nano-Technology so that they can work as professionals in this field or start doing research aimed at a Doctoral Thesis. Areas of knowledge: basically, the areas of chemistry, physics, engineering, material sciences, bio-chemistry, pharmacy and medicine. The areas covered by the Master are at the intersection between Nano-Science/Nano-Technology and molecular systems. It therefore has an influence on areas of current scientific interest such as Molecular Electronics, Molecular Magnetism, Supra-Molecular Chemistry, surface physics and the Science of Molecular Materials

  • Type: Inter-university
  • Place:
    • University of Valladolid, in the Faculty of Sciences
    • Miguel Hernández University of Elche, in the Faculty of Experimental Sciences
    • University of La Laguna, in the Faculty of Sciences
    • University of Castilla-La Mancha, in the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Bio-Chemistry, Toledo
    • Autonomous University of Madrid, in the Faculty of Sciences
    • University of Alicante, in the Faculty of Sciences
    • University of Valencia (Estudi General), in the University Institute of Molecular Science
    • N.B.: part of the teaching is given outside of the ULL
  • Academic direction:
  • Have and understand knowledge that provides a base or an opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context
  • Know how to apply the knowledge acquired and its capacity to solve problems in new or little known environments within broader (or multi-disciplinary) contexts relating to the area of study
  • Be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating opinions from information that, while incomplete or limited, includes reflections about the social and ethical responsibilities linked to applying your knowledge and judgements
  • Know how to communicate your conclusions and the knowledge and final reasons that underpin them clearly and unambiguously to specialist and non-specialist audiences
  • Have the learning skills to enable students to continue studying in a largely self-directed and autonomous manner
  • Having completed the Master, students will have the multi-disciplinary training in both the chemical aspects relating to nanoscience (ascending approach of nanoscience for designing functional molecules and surpra-molecular structures; inter-molecular interactions; self-assembly and molecular self-organisation) and the physical aspects (descending approach for nano-manufacture, physical handling and organisation techniques and the characterisation of nanomaterials)
    General skills
    • Have and understand the knowledge to contribute a base or an opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context
    • Apply the knowledge acquired and its ability to solve problems in new or little-know environments within broader (or multi-disciplinary) contexts related to the area of study
    • Be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgements from information that, while incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of that knowledge and those judgements
    • Know how to communicate your conclusions and the knowledge and reasons that underpin them, clearly and unambiguously to specialist and non-specialist audiences
    • Have the learning abilities to enable students to continue studying, largely in a self-directed and autonomous manner

    Especific skills
    • Acquire the know-how and skills necessary to enter future doctorate studies in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology
    • Be able to communication and interact scientifically with colleagues from other fields of knowledge (e.g. chemistry in solving the problems posed by Molecular Nano-Science and Nano-Technology)
    • Know the methodological approaches used in Nanoscience
    • Know the main molecular system nano-manufacturing techniques

  • The recommended entry profile is a student who has previous bachelor degree studies in technical or experimental courses related to the objectives of the Master, including: Chemistry, Physics, Bio-chemistry, Bio-technology, Pharmacy, Medicine, Chemical Engineering, Electronic Engineering or similar qualifications
  • Students will also have to show level B2 English to guarantee that they can follow the theory classes
