Erasmus Mundus Master Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Imec is associated partner of the Erasmus Mundus Master Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (EMM-Nano+ master) in collaboration with 5 leading European universities. Thanks to its combination of partners, expertise and courses, it offers a unique integrated master program, covering all aspects of nanoscience and nanoelectronics, while at the same time allowing students to design an individual study program with specialization in essentially any field of nanoscience and nanoelectronics. It is an excellent preparation for doing a PhD at imec later on.

It facilitates studying at two separate participating universities where students spend one year per country. It is strongly multidisciplinary: students receive a basic training in all the disciplines offered, one of which becomes the area of specialization. At the end of the program students will receive a joint degree from the two universities where they studied. The program includes the possibility to do project work and internships at imec.
