Teaching

At the Institute of Nanotechnology and Materials Engineering for students of the 1st and 2nd degree studies, two fields of studies are available – Nanotechnology and Materials Engineering.

Field of studies: Nanotechnology (1st degree):
Specialty: Nanomaterials and functional nanostructures 
Specialty: Nanomaterials in engineering, medicine and cosmetology (specialty run in cooperation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Shipbuilding of the Gdańsk University of Technology).

Field of studies: Nanotechnology (2nd degree):
Specialty: Nanomaterials for energy applications,
Specialty: Photonic nanostructures (specialty run in cooperation with the Institute of High Pressures of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw)
Specialty: (in English) The Master of Science Study in Nanotechnology, specialization Nanostructures and computer simulations in material science.

Field of studies Materials Engineering (1st and 2nd degree):
(inter-departmental studies, implemented at the Faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Technical Physics and Applied Mathematics and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Shipbuilding of the Gdańsk University of Technology):
Specialty: Engineering of advanced functional materials (1st degree),
Specialty: Engineering of functional materials (2nd degree).

The essence of nanotechnology is the study, controlled design and use of nanometre-sized materials and structures, devices and systems. It is the science of the future, which can find application in many fields, e.g. electronics, materials technologies, medicine or pharmacy. Nanotechnology makes it is possible to design materials with unusual properties (e.g. very light materials with high mechanical strength, materials that efficiently convert different types of energy into electricity, biocompatible materials, self-cleaning fabrics).

Whether an item is practical in use is largely determined by the characteristics of the materials used in its manufacturing. Design, production and continuous improvement of materials is carried out by materials engineering. Almost all industries benefit from this development. Displays of modern phones, plastics, increasingly lighter and resistant components used in the aerospace industry, medical implants are just a few pieces of evidence of the enormous importance of material science.

Teaching, and above all laboratory classes, for students of both fields take place in the modern Nanotechnology Center A.
