MAS Nano and Micro Technology | MAS-NMT

The objective of the master program in Nano and Micro Technology is the education of nanoscale engineers from talented engineers and students who have graduated in micro technology, physics, chemistry, mechatronics, data analysis & process design, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering.

Engineering at nanoscale means designing, manufacturing and controlling systems and components at the level of 10-9 which is a 1/1000th of a micrometer or a microsecond.

The operation of many products and industrial systems already today depends on controlling part of their components at the nanoscale: notable examples are watches, car engines, the cells of the human body, integrated circuits, information storage and communication devices, etc.

Thus, product design at nanoscale and process engineering at nanoscale are important steps towards realizing the manufacture, operation and reliability of those systems. It can be shown in many cases that the costs of ownership of a product can be reduced substantially by applying product design at nanoscale and process engineering at nanoscale.

Therefore, nanoscale devices and processes are the tools necessary to monitor and modify these systems in a focussed and economic way. The fact that so many everyday products and systems rely on control at nanoscale ensures that nanotechnology will occupy an important part of our future engineering activities. It can be assumed, that engineering neglecting nanoscale aspects will be limited to a fraction of total engineering activities in the future.

Nanoscale engineers are now and will be increasingly in the future, seizing the opportunity to create a host of new products and services, which we can only begin to imagine.
