TP NanoThis track is dedicated to students having completed four years of higher education, totalizing the equivalent of 240 ECTS.  It is appropriate for graduated students having a 4-years Bachelor's of Science, or students having followed the first year of a master in biology or life science and who want to re-orient towards nano-biotechnologies or nano-medecine.

The research intensive track (RIT) includes a long master thesis with a research internship starting in the 1st year of the program. Together with the 2nd year, students devote to their research project a total of 9 months equivalent full time, totalizing 48 credits on the two years.

In the RIT track, 1st year students do not take electives courses. They replace these electives by a research project in nanosciences performed in a one of the labs or institutes of the Grenoble area. They work on this research project 2 days each week from October to April, and then on a full time basis. This research project is credited 21 ECTS total.
In the 2nd year students join one of the nano-physics, nano-chemistry, nanobiosciences or nano-medecine tracks. They devote their first semester to courses and pursue their research full time for 5 months minimum from the beginning of February to June or July. The 1st year and 2nd year projects are usually a continuation of each other and are performed with the same adviser, but this is not compulsory and students can choose a different project in the 2nd year if they wish.
