About the profession

Nanoengineering is the main vector of industrialization in the 21th century. It is considered that the speech “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” by a physicist Richard Feynman (American Physical Society, December 29, 1959) inspired scientists to conduct research in the field of nanotechnology. Feynman described a process, which allowed manipulating individual atoms and molecules. Nanotechnologies have become a part of human life since 2001, when a scientific journal “Science” called nanotechnologies “the Breakthrough of the Year”, while a business magazine “Forbes” – “a new promising idea”. Ten years later, third-generation nanosystems and nanostructures were created, where synthesis and assembly technologies were used, such as bioassembly, surface robotics, modular nanosystems, chemical and mechanical processing of molecular and quantum nanosystems.

Training process

A student is both a listener and an active participant in group and individual projects; interactive and case study methods. Classes are held with the use of multimedia technologies, webinars, teleconferences, where the focus is on the problems of the main trends of modern nanoengineering and engineering nanotechnology. The profession-oriented material is learnt in the context of the main directions of development of nanoengineering through special disciplines of the programme:

  • Introduction to nanomaterials and technologies
  • Information technologies in nanoengineering
  • Fundamentals of nanoengineering
  • Study of nanomaterials and nanosystems
  • Diagnostic methods in nanotechnologies
  • Micro- and nanosystem engineering
  • Nanometrology
  • Fundamentals of design of nanodevices and systems on their basis
  • CAD of micro- and nanoelectronic devices and micromechanical products
  • Technological systems in nanotechnology
  • Physical basis for of micro- and nanoelectronics
  • Functional layers in nanodevices
  • Physics and chemistry of nanotechnology

Internship: 

During training, students learn theoretical foundations of physical processes (physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanics), receive comprehensive mathematical training, become familiar with methods and means for nano-dimensional measurements. Students have the opportunity to undertake production-technological internships at experimental-measuring and technological facilities of nanocenters in Moscow, including the Nanotechnology Center at RUDN University. Students conduct research in the fields of nanometrology, nanomaterials, nanosystems, etc.

Career opportunities

If you want a career in science, you can conduct fundamental and applied comprehensive research of processes, phenomena and technologies, with and without nanoscale effects.
In the field of different-purpose industrial production, engineering, energy, instrument-making, space industries, depending on the chosen field of study, you will be able to:

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