“Hands On” activities of the Nanosciences and Nanotechnology Master
Florence Marchi Associate Professor at Université Joseph Fourier, received the prize for innovative education at the 8th French-speaking Colloquium for Teaching Systems and Information Technologies and Sciences. The prize was awarded for her presentation of the force-feedback nanomanipulator, which allows students and the general public to “touch the Nanoworld with their fingertips”.
A key asset of the Nanosciences and Nanotechnology Master relies on a large panel of Practical Works at the current state-of-the-art of the field. All PWs have been developed and are under the supervision of professors that have their research activities in direct link with the PW subject.
At UJF a strong effort is dedicated to Educational Innovation through the presence of technology centers dedicated to lab sessions, (CUBE, Chemistry platform). UJF strongly encourages trans-disciplinary teaching approach and transfer of knowledge and how-known from research to education.
The association of these high level PWs and regular courses provides a broad and original education in Nano-fields to the students enrolled in our Nanosciences and Nanotechnology Master.
Examples of Nano Practical Works available:
On the 1st year of Master
- “Morphological and Mechanical studies of biological cells fixed on a micro-functionalized pattern by Atomic Force and Fluorescence microscopies techniques”. This PW of 12hours addresses biochemical and physical concepts at the nanoscale, it takes place at CUBE and CIME-Nanotech. Level: M1
- “Chemical Synthesis of metallic nanoparticules and their morphological characterization by UV -visible optical technique and Atomic Force Microscopy”. This PW of 8 hours takes place at Chemical platform of UJF and CIME Nanotech. Level: M1
On the 2nd year of Master
