Doctoral Programme in Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials



The doctoral program in Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials is a continuation of the previously existing program, adapted to the new structure of doctoral studies. It was established in 2007 and, since then, has received positive evaluations, both in terms of its Quality Award (ECI/1091/2007) and the more recent Award towards Excellence (MEE2011-0591). More detailed information on its characteristics can be obtained at

The new program is also organized by the Department of Material Physics of the University of the Basque Country/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), in close collaboration with the Mixed Centre of Material Physics of the UPV/EHU and the Higher Council of Scientific Research (CSIC), in which the CIC nanGUNE Cooperative Research Centre and the Donostia International Physics Centre (DIPC) are also highly involved. As is suggested by its name, the topic of the program is interdisciplinary and is primarily related to Condensed Matter and Applied Physics as well as to Material Science, with emphasis on its relationship with Nanoscience. This makes the doctoral program suitable for students with qualifications in areas of Physics, Chemistry and Science/Material Engineering.
