Nanoscience is an emerging field of research related to the capability to construct extremely small objects (nanotechnology). It is a highly cross-disciplinary research area, which is going to play a crucial role in future scientific discoveries and new technologies. Thus, in the near future individuals with proper skills and experience in Nanoscience will be required by advanced research and technological centers.

For this reason, the Materials Physics Department (UPV/EHU) and the Center of Materials Physics (CSIC-UPV/EHU), in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center and the CIC Nanogune, offer a new postgraduate program in Nanoscience. Participants will complete an individualized program to be granted a Master's degree in Nanoscience (MSc). Research with internationally renowned teams, direct contact with senior researchers and the possibility of further study are offered as an integral part of the program.

The first Master Course edition started in October 2007. an average of 12 students/year were enrolled, abput 40% of them coming from abroad and 4 continents.

Qualification level

This qualification is recognised at level 3 in the Spanish Framework of Higher Education Qualifications (MECES) and corresponds to level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), according to Royal Decree 22/2015 of 23rd January 2015 (BOE Spanish Official Gazette 07/02/2015).

This is a research-oriented master that can be considered the previous step to doctorate studies
