Programme description

In response to the growing need to keep pace with the rapid development of new technologies, we aim to educate future experts able to solve fundamental issues in the area of new types of electronic devices as well as alternative energy sources. Being fully aware that most of attractive new technologies are based on a combination of innovations in nanotechnology, photonics and organic electronics supported by modern calculation methods and analytical techniques, including synchrotron-based ones, we offer a four semester study programme Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (AMN), which includes all of the abovementioned issues. The programme will be taught in English, which means it will be suited for both Polish and international students. The second-cycle AMN programme will enable students to gain interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in the field of advanced materials and nanotechnology based on the courses on the basics of physics, chemistry and material engineering they attended during the first-cycle studies. Throughout all four semesters, many classes will take the form of laboratory work in highly specialised environment. Students will write theses on subjects directly related to the work of their research teams. This approach to teaching on an innovative and interdisciplinary programme is consistent with the Jagiellonian University’s mission and strategic goals: to develop new areas of study and integrate teaching with research.

Graduate profile

The Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology study programme will open a new chapter in educational activities at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science that are related to global challenges such as the need to develop new types of electronic devices and renewable energy sources. Graduates of the AMN second-cycle study programme will have a vast knowledge in the area of materials science and nanotechnology as well as experience necessary to navigate in the world of advanced materials, systems and devices.
