The Nanoscale Engineering master is a two-year program corresponding to 120 ECTS credits. Students receive a universal and profound training in physics, materials science and electronics at the nanoscale, but also in nanobiotechnology.

Elective courses can be followed by the students in their desired area of specialization and/or to broaden their horizons. The entire curriculum is taught in English.

A key educational concept of the program is that each student is immersed in a high-quality research environment for at least half of the time in the curriculum. Throughout the academic year, lab practicals and projects are carried out in research institutions that participate in the program, and thesis projects are undertaken in research laboratories or in nanotechnology companies.

In addition to the scientific and technological aspects, ethical issues and the societal impact of nanotechnology, as well as business considerations, are addressed in specialized seminars and courses.

Structure of the Curriculum

First Year (60 ECTS)

The major part of semester 1 is dedicated to lectures: The students follow 7 courses from the core modules and 2 elective modules. Laboratory practicals and mini-projects ensure a smooth transition into semester 2 with its four-month internship in a research group. This internship is prepared in semester 1 already with a dedicated literature survey. Seminars of speakers from both academia and industry complement the educational program throughout the entire first year.

Second Year (60 ECTS)

Semester 3 is again dedicated to lectures, featuring 5 slots for core modules and 3 for electives, as well as some ancillary courses. The entirety of semester 4 is taken up by the six-month Master thesis project, which can be conducted in a research laboratory or in a company, in France or abroad. As in the first year, seminars of speakers from both academia and industry complement the educational program.

Modules and Courses

Core Modules

These courses impart the fundamental knowledge in the nanotechnology field applied to physics, electronics, optics, materials science and biotechnology. Students are required to follow at least twelve core module courses during the two-year program.

Core modules in the first year There are four obligatory core modules in the first year:

Introduction to Nanoscale Engineering
Micro- and Nanofabrication, part 1
Characterization Tools for Nanostructures
Quantum Engineering

Furthermore, there is a remedial physics course to which students are assigned based on the results of a physics test at the beginning of semester 1:

Basics of Physics

Finally, students have to select a minimum of three courses from the following list for their first year:

Solid State Physics at the Nanoscale
Continuum Mechanics
Physics of Semiconductors, part 1
Physical Chemistry and Molecular Interactions
Biomolecules, Cells, and Biomimetic Systems

Core modules in the second year Students have to choose at least four courses from the following selection for their second year:

Nano-Optics and Biophotonics
Surface-Analysis Techniques
Physics of Semiconductors, part 2
Micro- and Nanofluidics
Micro- and Nanofabrication, part 2
Biosensors and Biochips
Computer Modeling of Nanoscale Systems

Elective Modules

These courses cover a wide range of nanotechnology-related disciplines and thus allow the students to specialize according to their preferences as well as to broaden their expertise. Elective modules in the first year Three courses from the following list have to be chosen for the first year:

Nanomechanics
MEMS and NEMS
Introduction to System Design
Drug-Delivery Systems

Elective modules in the second year Students follow a minimum of three courses from the following selection in the second year:

Multi-Domain System Integration
Solar Cells and Photovoltaics
Nanomagnetism and Spintronics
Nanoelectronics
Tissue and Cell Engineering

Experimental Modules

Students conduct lab practicals that are integrated into the various courses, during which they familiarize themselves hands-on with all standard techniques for fabrication and characterization of nanostructures. They furthermore have the opportunity to work more independently on individual or group projects.

Ancillary Courses and Seminars

This module deals with complementary know-how, relevant both for academia and in an industrial environment. Students follow a course on intellectual-property issues. Ethical aspects and the societal impact of nanotechnology are covered in specialized seminars, which also allow for networking with national and international nanotechnology companies and research laboratories. Communication skills are likewise developed through written and oral presentations of all experimental work that is carried out during the Master program.

Internship

In the second semester, students conduct two-month internships in two of the research laboratories participating in the program. The students choose their projects and come into contact with their host laboratories earlier in the academic year already, by spending some time in these laboratories to carry out an extensive literature survey and to prepare their research projects under the guidance of their supervisors.

Master Thesis Project

The final six-month period of the program is devoted to the master project, which can be carried out either in an academic research laboratory or in an industrial environment. Students have the option to conduct their thesis project anywhere in France or abroad.

The MSc in Acoustics is a 4 semester program (two years) from Semester 7 (S7) to Semester 10 (S10) according to the European semestrial organisation. The first year of the Master (M1) is covered by S7 and S8, whereas the second year of the program (M2) by S9 and S10.

The first semester (S7) provides the scientific background required for this Master, including some fundamentals of Mechanics, Continuum Physics and data processing as well as an introductory course to Acoustics. The second semester (S8) is devoted to acoustics and its context with practical application in an Acoustic Laboratory. During the third semester (S9), more advanced and specialised courses in acoustics are offered in parallel to application oriented lectures. Students can chose to specialised in their field of interest. The last semester (S10) is devoted to the MSc project, which can be carried out in a research laboratory as well as in the industry.

In parallel to the scientific program, English courses and/or a French courses are also offered: the objective is to provide the language basics that are required to attend the scientific courses, read and write scientific articles or reports and work in an international research team.

Objectives
The objective of the MSc program is to provide the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills that are required to take up a variety of challenges in acoustics. In particular, a project (case study) and two internships are planned; thus the program offers room for applying theoretical concepts to practical situations.
There are 27 Credits (ECTS) for optional courses in which students may deepen their knowledge in aeroacoustics, building acoustics, vehicle acoustics, sound perception, ultrasounds, vibro-acoustics or fluid-structure interactions.

General skills developed during the MSc program are:
- scientific communication in French and/or in English, which is trained during devoted language courses, scientific courses in English and oral defences of the project and internships.
- corporate life awareness via courses and seminars about project management, research policies, intellectual property etc. as well as during the internships.

Time effort
The overall number of hours per student is 500h during the first (M1) and 240h during the second year (M2), that is, 740 hours spread over the 3 first semesters.
Additionally, 4 to 12 weeks during S8 (M1) and 20-25 weeks during S10 (M2), that is, a minimum of 24 weeks of internship.
