Master in Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology (AMSN)

Nanomaterials are found in the center of contemporary technological evolution that has direct impacts to daily life of human being. This 2-years master program of Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology at University of Science and Technology of Hanoi (VIETNAM FRANCE UNIVERSITY) is designed with aims to provide depth knowledge (both academia and practical knowledge) to students about all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Two tracks are currently provided, namely Nanophysics and Nanochemistry. A third track with engineering and industrial application orientation will be proposed in the next academic year (2016-2017).

As an international standard program, all of our courses are provided in English. That is because we believe professional working in English will be a huge advantage for our students in the contemporary international competition, especially when the ASEAN Economic Community is fully established end of 2015.
Students are enrolled both at the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi (VIETNAM FRANCE UNIVERSITY) and at a French partner university. A six (6) months internship in France will be offered to students in the second year (Master 2). Graduated students will be awarded a double-degree from French university and from University of Science and Technology of Hanoi.
