Nanoscience studies phenomena and manipulation on the atomic and molecular scale (nanometers: i.e., one billionth of a meter). Important properties such as the electrical, optical and mechanical properties are determined by the way molecules and atoms assemble into larger structures on the nanoscale.

Nanotechnology is the application of this science in new nanomaterials and nano - concepts for new components, systems and products. Therefore, nanotechnology will provide us with the ability to design custom-made materials with any property we require.

These newborn scientific disciplines are situated at the interface of physics, chemistry, material science, micro electronics, biochemistry and biotechnology. The master Nanoscience & Nanotechnology of Grenoble is a 2-years integrated program with a  strong research backbone and an important international outreach, providing a top quality multidisciplinaty education in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The key assets of master N2 are:

The program offers the best opportunities to continue in PhD with a strong multi-disciplinary background, or to join industrial development in a domain overflowing with applications in practically all sectors of the world economy.
