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 Materials 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 2016, UNAM has 44 M.Sc. students, 43 Ph.D. students and 1 special students. The number of international M.S. and Ph.D. students is gradually increasing.
