Programme description

Nanotechnology studies are an interdisciplinary program which covers various aspects of physics, chemistry, material science and biology, which are especially important for modern technology as well as the technology of the future.

During the studies, students have a unique opportunity to gain the understanding at the nanoscale of the phenomena which are crucial for the development of new electronic devices along with enhancing their knowledge of new functional materials dedicated for nanoelectronics, electrotechnics, and medicine.

Nanotechnology is a 3-year program with two terms per study year with English as the main study language.

During the first year, the students take courses which allow them to understand and describe the nanometer world. Those include courses on the basics of physics and chemistry. The program introduces the concepts and terminology used in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Additionally, the students gain knowledge in the field of mathematics and statistics.

During the second year, the students improve their understanding of the rules governing the nanoworld. The courses cover quantum physics, physical chemistry of surfaces and crystallography. Additionally, the students develop their experimental skills of growth and characterisation of nanostructures.

In the last year of the studies, the program focuses on the main aspects of the application of nanomaterials in the real industrial environment. The courses expand the knowledge of nanostructures devices particularly based on graphene, nanotubes, nanoparticles, hybrid structures and a wide range of molecules.

Students study through lectures, tutorials, laboratories and projects. All the courses are accompanied by practical classes in a laboratory equipped with state of the art scientific instruments.

Students are assessed through examinations, laboratory reports, projects as well as oral presentations. In the final year, students prepare their diploma thesis and present it during the final bachelor exam.

The highly respected University of Lodz is one of the leading institutions of higher education in Poland. It was established in 1945 as a successor of educational institutions active in Lodz in earlier times. The 13 faculties of the University provide programmes in 90 fields of study and 165 specializations. In addition, the University offers doctoral programmes, more than 70 postgraduate curricula including an MBA programme, and programmes financed by the ESF. Our students, together with those studying in Lodz within exchange programmes, come from about 90 different countries. In this truly international atmosphere everyone can experience the cultural diversity of both the city and the institution. Read less
