Analysis of M-level modules in interdisciplinary nanotechnology education

This document provides a snap-shot as to what various institutions across Europe have elected to teach at post-graduate level under a large, and exciting, variety of Nanotechnology Masters qualifications. It shows that there are courses teaching programmes devoted to physics at the nanoscale, courses that can develop an entrepreneur and courses that are focused on using Nanotechnology for the betterment of mankind through the development of medical or energy harvesting devices. In essence this document contains the key information of what modules are seamlessly pieced together to generate a Nanotechnology Masters.

Nanotechnology Skills and Training Survey

Institute of Nanotechnology, in an action part-financed by the EU, has conducted a survey of skills and training needs of industry. This questionnaire was targeted at companies involved in the research, development, production and marketing of nanomaterials, products enabled by nano-scale innovations and services companies in nanotechnology, across all industry sectors.

The aim is to identify skills gaps in the emerging nanotechnology market, identify professional development and training needs, and inform institutions running nanotechnology masters programmes so that they can be better focused on industry’s needs.
