Master's Program in Nanotechnology

Master's Program in Nanotechnology

Laboratory Activities

The Master's Program in Nanotechnology is based on the program of Osaka University (Japan) with some adjustment to match the situation in Vietnam.

The program combines theoretical knowledge with practical skills, deepening the specialized knowledge as well as expand the interdisciplinary knowledge in order to understand the issues related to the Nano-sized world and master the advanced technology in the field of Nano Science.

Through the program, students will be able to accumulate skills in research methods, detecting, analyzing and problem solving abilities, the fabrication process, the materials survey and Nano devices. On that basis, students can research and apply components and nano materials into practice in fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacology, environment, energy... To update the latest achievements of Nano Science and Technology in the world, some of newest research in the field of Nanotechnology in Vietnam, Japanese and abroad as well will be put into teaching content.
