This interdisciplinary program focuses on the modern aspects of nanotechnology for chemistry and material science. Special emphasis is made on engineering of functional nanoarchitectures for catalysis, biomedical applications, and photonics.
Specialists with interdisciplinary experience in chemistry, material science, biology and IT, will undoubtedly be demanded at leading scientific institutions both in Russia and abroad in such areas as medical and pharmaceutical industry, food and chemical enterprises at biotechnology and engineering companies and holdings.
The program uniquely combines the state-of-the-art computational and practical aspects of material sciences and nanotechnology. It effectively bridges material sciences and information technologies, both strategic research areas of ITMO University.
Benefits of the Program
The program is delivered under the aegis of SCAMT Lab (Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies), the ITMO department specializing in hybrid materials creation by soft solution chemical methods in nanomaterial science and development of biomedical, optical materials and advanced industrial materials.
- The students can perform research projects in one of the research groups or work on their own startups at an industrial laboratory. Depending on the project, from the second semester, the students choose individual learning tracks in one of the following specializations:
- Computational Design of Materials;
- Applied Materials;
- Industrial Brokerage in the Field of Nanoengineering.
- Young professors with relevant work experience gained in such prominent universities as Eindhoven, University of Central Florida, University of Leipzig, Hebrew University and others.
- The students have an excellent opportunity for research and educational internship at the world's top universities: Leipzig University, University of Liege, Trinity College, University of Waterloo, University of Aveiro, and more.
- Nice bonus! The most successful candidates will be nominated for ITMO СhemBio Cluster Scholarship.
- Covers fundamentals of multiscale phenomena underlying engineering of nanodevices from molecular inorganic chemistry to sol-gel processes and interface phenomena.
- Focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to nanomaterial engineering for sustainability. The program involves a wide range of courses given by top-tier scientists affiliated with the research center on such subjects as green chemistry; catalysis science and technology; inorganic chemistry & material science; sol-gel chemistry; computational modeling in material sciences, etc.
- Offers an individual approach to explore the potential and talents of the students
- Provides access to modern research facilities of the center such as equipment for advanced materials synthesis, physical-chemical characterization, electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, as well as infrastructure for computational chemistry.
- Creates an opportunity for students to carry out research on topics related to current social problems in ambitious research teams affiliated with the research center.
