THE FIRST YEAR:
Theory, practice and a project
The first semester of the year is mainly taken up by courses cementing the fundament of your (nanotechnological) knowledge. Subjects include mathematics, physical chemistry and micro-/nano-engineering. In the third quarter you are assigned an individual project on which you will be working until the end of the first year.
Nanotechnology in Twente
Twente is the ultimate nanotechnology hotspot in the Netherlands. The region boasts impressive facilities and know-how in this specific subject, including, but not limited to, research groups at both Saxion and the University of Twente. Both MESA+ and MIRA are recognized throughout the world as leading institutions with state-of-the-art facilities. Furthermore, the area offers excellent job opportunities within the field of micro- and nanotechnology.
- 70% Theory
- 30% Practical and group work
Examples of projects are:
Designing an electronic nose that can detect specific molecules selectively at extreme low concentrations. This sensor can subsequently be applied for instance in health care or the detection of illegal explosives.
Sustainable and Circular Electronics
Lifetime Extension Technologies; using micro/nano sensors to monitor the health of sensitive electronic components in realtime.
Designing a point-of-care test with which GP’s can perform tests on patients needing a minimal amount of saliva.
• Interfaces and Polymers
Dynamic System Modelling
Project in an integrated R&D environment
