1. PROGRAM MISSION  [Back]

 

Materials are found in all sectors of our modern society from healthcare, environment treatment to energy conversion storage and communication technology. With the emerging of nanotechnology (the technology deals with designing and fabrication of materials and devices at nanoscale) in the last decades, application of materials is given even larger dimension.
The mission of the Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology (AMSN) undergraduate program at University of Science and Technology of Hanoi is to provide students with a strong foundation in materials science and nanotechnology. Therefore, the program's curriculum places special emphasis on the fundamental principles that underlie the knowledge and implementation of materials structure, processing, characterization and performance of all classes of materials. Courses in the program develop students' knowledge of modern materials science with the application of nanotechnology, teach them to apply skills gained to create innovative solutions to practical problems. Furthermore, to prepare our students for their successful engagement in the society they are trained with communication, leadership and teamwork skills.


 

2. PROGRAM CURRICULUM  [Back]


The AMSN curriculum begins from the second academic year of USTH. This second year  is devoted for basic understanding in physics and chemistry of materials. In the third academic year, students study about material fabrication and synthesis, tools for material characterization, consolidate their knowledge of nanomaterials in life science, energy and environment application. In addition, students are trained to take part of a research project through completing a group project. Subsequently they are invited to perform an internship of at least three months in a leading research laboratory or a R&D department in Vietnam or oversea.

3. PROGRAM OUTCOMES  [Back]

 

The AMSN program outcomes include AUN outcomes as well as the program-specific outcomes.  All of these are listed here:
1. The curriculum is developed to promote learning, learning how to learn and to instill in students a commitment of lifelong learning (e.g. commitment to critical inquiry, development of study and information-processing skills, a willingness to experiment with new ideas and practices).
2. The curriculum offers to graduates the ability to do advanced studies, to develop their own personality, to have an academic attitude and to be competent in their field of study. The graduates should also have transferable skills, leadership skills, and should be oriented to the job market and be able to develop their careers.
3. The curriculum has clearly formulated learning outcomes, reflecting the relevant demands and needs of all stakeholders.
4. The curriculum offers to graduates the ability to apply the fundamentals of nanotechnology and applications.
5. The curriculum offers to graduates an understanding of material properties in various fields such as physics, chemistry, energy, semiconductor, ….
6. The curriculum offers to graduates an appreciation for the influence of nanotechnology in modern industry.


 

4.CAREER OPPORTUNITIES  [Back]

 
Graduates with Diploma in Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnologycan find great job opportunities from international agencies and different industrial sectors like materials for energy (solar panel production, batteries, LED), materials for healthcare (drug formulation, sensing kit developer, cosmetics), materials for environment (water depollution, evaluation of biomass), materials for microelectronics, composites etc. Appropriate job positions could be R&D research assistant, Quality Control engineer, product developer or production technician. Evidently, qualified students are encouraged to join academia either with a master training or with a research assistant position within high education and research institutions.
