Course content

EXPLORE THE APPLICATIONS OF NANOMATERIALS

Nanomaterials are essential building blocks that can produce chemicals in an environmentally friendly manner, harvest light to supply energy, and help develop faster computers and better medicines. In this two-year Master’s programme, you will gain in-depth knowledge on, and experimental experience with, novel nanomaterials and their synthesis, structure, and applications – for example, as catalysts or in nanophotonics.

The Dutch Master's Selection Guide (Keuzegids Masters 2017) ranked Utrecht University's Nanomaterials Science programme as the best in the field of Chemistry in the Netherlands.

Students chose the Master's programme Nanomaterials Science at Utrecht University as the best programme in the field in the yearly review 'Beste studies' by Elsevier.

CHEMISTRY OF THE FUTURE

The dimensions of systems at the microscopic level determine their physical and chemical properties and applications. Your studies will provide you with the tools to analyse and experiment with these properties and possibilities. In addition, the course content will introduce you to the nanomaterials of tomorrow, including colloidal crystals – a new tool for the manipulation of light in miniature lasers and optical devices – and new catalysts for more efficient and environmentally friendly chemistry.

CONTRIBUTE TO A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY

The combined talents and expertise of chemists are essential for success in a number of subfields within science and technology. Our Master’s programme offers you the knowledge and training to work as a scientist who contributes to a more sustainable society. Through your courses and research work, you will participate in the exciting field of nanomaterial development and develop fundamental knowledge of various applications and industrial interests. Our staff members excel in research and in teaching, and they maintain close ties with partners in industry and academia. As part of your programme, you may opt to participate in an industry-based internship.

The prestigious Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science provides teaching and research in the programme. The institute focuses on three research areas: colloids, catalysis, and nanophotonics.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE 

Nanomaterials Science is a two-year (120 ECTS) multidisciplinary programme in which you will explore the subject areas of catalysis, colloid science, and nanophotonics. The programme will provide you with a solid theoretical background and help you develop the experimental skills necessary to perform high-level research. Coursework is thus combined with research, allowing you the opportunity to put theory into practice.
