Our program is aimed at methodologies applied to nano-engineering, application-oriented and specifically focused on chemical synthesis and characterization. It includes the methodology of bottom-up design of nano-systems using modeling and chemical synthesis at the nano-scale.
Chemistry for nano-engineering is an innovative field of science and technology, which is developing very fast. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry shows the importance of research in this area. It has shown that engineering of nano-machines is not anymore science-fiction ; it is just a beginning of a new engineering specialty, where nano-systems are numerically designed and chemically synthesized. These new technologies will create a large demand for specialists in this field.
Teaching shared by three universities : Aix-Marseille University (semester 1), Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (semester2) and University Roma Tor Vergata (semester 3).
Basic university courses in informatics, mathematics, physics and chemistry.
Basics in molecular biology, statistical thermodynamics and computer modeling.
