Introduction


1. OVERVIEW

Nanomaterials are found in the center of contemporary technological evolution that has direct impacts to daily life of human beings. This 2-years master program of Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology at USTH is designed with aims to provide depth knowledge (both academia and practical knowledge) to students about all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. 

With proposed courses ranging from foundation of materials to current trends in research & development of advanced functional materials together with courses dealing with management, production quality control etc, students are trained to be ready for next step of their academic career (PhD preparation) or for a working in industrial environment with the position such as technical assistant or Research & Development engineer. Indeed, most of our master students received PhD scholarships from reputed institutions in France, USA or other countries after graduation.

Students are enrolled both at the USTH and at a French partner university. In the second year (Master 2), the top 10% of students will be granted a six (6)-month internship in France. All graduated students will be awarded a double-degree from a French university and USTH.
