ECTS guidebook


Full-time second-cycle studies in micro and nanotechnology last 3 semesters and finish with the completion of a master’s thesis and obtaining a master’s degree. The curriculum combines two profiles of education. One of them is focused on nanotechnology with particular emphasis on the physical basis of the manufacture and characterization of nanomaterials. An alternative path is microtechnology, in which the main emphasis is placed on computer-based microsystem design techniques (CAD, CNC, FEM modelling). The selection of the education profile is made by the student through the modules to choose from. The students choose the subject of the master’s thesis during the first semester of studies. They participate in the master’s seminar, in classes at the graduate’s laboratory and specialist lectures in accordance with the selected subject of the thesis. During their studies, they participate in seminars, lectures and specialist laboratories. During this time, they prepare master’s theses, which are performed in the scientific laboratories of the Institute of Physics. The main goal of teaching at the second-cycle studies in micro and nanotechnology is to provide appropriate knowledge in the field of the basics of nanotechnology and to develop the skills needed for independent work, especially in the field of applications.

Career prospects

The graduates of micro and nanotechnology have an interdisciplinary knowledge of physics, chemistry, computer science, materials engineering in the field used in modern nanotechnology. In addition, the graduates know the diverse applications of physical methods in modern industry and research laboratories. This makes them full-fledged and highly sought-after specialists who can work in innovative companies, laboratories working for industry, scientific laboratories of universities, and the institutions of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The graduates also have practical knowledge of physical methods used in laboratories and industry. They have the skills of life-long learning and effective use of knowledge. During the studies, special emphasis will be placed on the development of problem-solving skills, including complex ones, requiring the use of an appropriate mathematical apparatus, physical method and technology. Students will develop design thinking skills. The graduates will obtain sufficient preparation to work in companies with the nanotechnological profile. The skills that the graduates have acquired during their studies can be used in related fields such as computer science or materials engineering. After the second-cycle studies, education can be continued at the third-cycle studies (doctoral studies).

Admissions criteria

The candidates who completed 1st cycle studies, 2nd cycle studies or long-cycle studies in the following degree programmes: technical physics, physics, biomedical engineering, medical physics, biophysics, computer science and applied computer science, may apply for admission.

The admission criterion is the Bachelor’s, Master’s or Engineer’s degree diploma grade.

In the case when the number of candidates exceeds the limit of places, admission is decided by means of the ranking list, created on the basis of the degree diploma grade.

A study candidate is obliged to submit a relevant medical certificate confirming the lack of medical contraindications to take up studies in this degree programme.
