About the profession

The possibility of studying any objects at the atomic level was mentioned by Isaac Newton in his «Opticks» (1704). He hoped that microscopes of the future will someday be used to explore the "secrets of corpuscles", in other words - secrets of the structure of the atom. Two centuries later, they started talking about nanotechnologies. Norio Taniguti first called this the production of items several nanometers in size. So what does NANO mean? This is a prefix that shows that the initial value should be reduced by a billion times, i.e. divided by one with nine zeros - 1,000,000,000. Indeed, reducing the diameter of a standard soccer ball by 100 million times, we get a nanoparticle 1 nm in size (the approximate diameter of a carbon molecule of fullerene C60, similar to a soccer ball in shape). But today, the use of a prefix NANO also mark a new era in the development of engineering and physical technologies, sometimes called the fourth industrial revolution, the era of NANOINDUSTRY: nanorobots, nanosatellites, nanomaterials, nanocomputers - powerful tools used in the field of healthcare, energy, environmental protection, materials science, data storage and processing.

Training process

A student is a listener and a participant in business games, group and individual projects; interactive and case study methods. Classes are held with the use of multimedia technologies, webinars, teleconferences.
The training material related to nanotrends, which include innovative materials, harder than many metal alloys by their properties, modeling of nanorobots that can build and manipulate things precisely and at the atomic level, and a revolutionary technology of qubits is learnt through specialized disciplines of the programme:

  • Technology of production of micro- and nanosystems
  • Methods of study of the characteristics of nanostructures
  • Physics of solid state, condensed states of the matter of nanosystems
  • Mechanisms of charge transfer in biosystems
  • Biochemical and pharmaceutical technologies
  • Technological quality assurance in nanoindustry

Traineeship and internship

Students have the opportunity to undertake on-the-job technological internships at the experimental-measuring and technological facilities of nanocenters in Moscow, among which is the Nanotechnology Center at RUDN University. Students conduct research in the areas of micro- and nanoelectronics, nanophase material science, optics, nanophotonics.
Among our partners is the Research and Production Corporation “Space Monitoring Systems, Control Information and Electromechanical Complexes” named after A.G. Iosifyan, which activity is related to the development of space technology for hydrometeorological and oceanographic support, as well as spacecraft for studying the ionosphere.

Career opportunities

If you want a career in science, you will have the opportunity to work in the scientific field and engage in applied interdisciplinary research in the field of physics, chemistry, mathematics and electronics, create new materials and study their structure at the molecular and atomic level, develop methods for research and improvement of nanoobjects and diagnose existing nano- and microsystems.
In the field of different-purpose industrial production, engineering, energy, instrument-making, space industries, depending on the chosen direction, graduates can:

  • work with modern and high-precision measuring and diagnostic equipment, on the most modern and powerful base of high-resolution electron microscopes,
  • design the nodes of electronic devices, robotic systems,
  • effectively operate the technological systems used in the manufacture of nanomaterials and products on their basis.
