Material Science and Nanotechologies
Faculty of Material Science and Applied Chemistry
The academic master’s study programme “Materials Science and Nanotechnologies” focused on the development of new materials and the use of modern technologies offers the acquisition of higher level technical education based on skills and competencies. In parallel with in-depth theoretical knowledge, the acquisition of practical skills is promoted not only in scientific institutes in Latvia, but also in manufacturing companies or foreign partner institutions within the ERASMUS+ mobility programmes specializing in “Materials Physics”, “Biomaterials”, “Traditional Inorganic Materials and Nanomaterials”, “Polymer Materials and Composites (including Nanocomposites)”.
The study programme includes general study courses on modelling and calculation of physical processes of materials, creation of innovative products and technologies, various study courses of professional specialization, as well as completed internship, offering students opportunities to create a study plan according to individual interests. Graduates of the study programme will be able to work as technical experts, consultants and engineers in a manufacturing company engaged in materials processing and process modelling, development of new materials and technologies, product design, testing, certification and quality laboratories, as well as participate in innovative product development by founding start-up company.
