Education objectives

The goals of this Master are:
  1. Implement training that FCTUNL and, in particular, the DCM through its Center for Research CENIMAT, have international recognition and are leaders in areas such as transparent electronics, electronic paper, nanotechnology applied to electronics, nano-processing devices, smart nanomaterials; nanobiosensor. 
  2. Provide expertise and skills to practice a profession in the area of Microelectronics and Process of Nanotechnologies, satisfying the requirements and objectives of the relevant technological research for industry and with international recognition. For this purpose it is required that students have a solid scientific background in mathematics and physics, which will be strengthened and complemented with skills in the areas of technology, design, management and innovation, linked to the Micro and Nanotechnology Process; 
  3. Linkages between scientific knowledge and technology with the real needs of the labor market in terms of innovation and effectiveness of processes and their characterization and evaluation;
  4. Encouraging the love of creativity and problem-solving and industrial or scientific research; 
  5. The promotion of skills of teamwork, leadership and entrepreneurship; 
  6. Allow the "recycling" of advanced engineers, particularly those with training in the areas of Electronics, Materials, Physics, Chemistry, and the like. 
Career Opportunities 

The Master of Engineering Micro and Nanotechnology provides adequate training to perform activities in the following areas: 
  • Industrial Electronics and Microelectronics 
  • Consultants, and Audit Project 
  • Teaching and Research 
  • Service Companies

Evaluation rules

The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:

  1. Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
  2. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
  3. Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
  4. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.

The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
