Materials Science and Nanotechnology (MSN) program prepares participants to perform cutting edge research and train them to be experts on a particular subject on an internationally recognized proficiency.




Why study at UNAM?

Although being established as a research center, UNAM has initiated its own M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree program as Institute of Materials Science and Nanotechnology. Research centers usually focus on research and do not consider teaching as their primary focus. However, UNAM has a mission to educate highly qualified personnel. Therefore, the Material Science and Nanotechnology (MSN) program has been offered by UNAM since 2008 and it has been getting increasingly more popular and attracting top students from Turkey and throughout the world. As of 2014, UNAM has 76 M.Sc. students, 68 Ph.D. students and 3 special students. The number of international M.S. and Ph.D. students is gradually increasing.

Materials Science and Nanotechnology Program

Current research in nanoscience and nanotechnology requires an advanced knowledge in materials science and involves design and fabrication of novel and functional nanostructures. The graduate program in Materials Science and Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary study and aims to develop researchers who can pursue outstanding and creative research in the diverse fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, such as nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine; atomic scale imaging; nano and microelectronics; nanotextile; nanophotonics; femtosecond lasers; spintronics; advanced materials design and manufacturing of nanofibers; nanotribology, hydrogen economy and solar energy, etc. The graduate program provides an in depth understanding of materials in nanometer scale and present an excellent training starting from the quantum theory of matter and quantum statistical thermodynamics. The graduate courses to be taken by the students have to focus on his/her thesis work.
