The Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University invites the graduated bachelors to enroll in the interdisciplinary master degree programme «Functional nanomaterials and advanced technologies». The programme was opened in 2017. The graduated bachelors who have good skills in English and diplomas in physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and other sciences are recommended for enrollment.

Master students study modern, experimental and theoretical methods in the fields of nanotechnologies and practical usage of functional nanomaterials. The graduates of this programme will have a possibility to take up employment with international companies and research institutes.


During the first two semesters, the students will attend basic and specialized disciplines. The trainers from the leading Russian and foreign universities will give lectures in English language. Students can choose the training courses and topics for their master theses concerning their previous education. During the second two semesters, the students will carry out applied, fundamental and experimental projects.
The study courses have three directions:

• Biomedical applications
• Optics and photonics
• Industry

Best students will have a possibility to do internships and conduct their studies partly in the world leading research centres such as University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), the Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia), Istituto di Struttura della Materia ISM (Italy), Riga Technical University, Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Microtechnologies (Latvia), Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (Czech Republic), National Cancer Institute (Lithuania), Gdańsk University of Technology (Poland) and others.
At the end of the study programme the students will defend their master thesis and get the master degree in physics.

Since 2019 the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University has opened the master degree programme «Functional nanomaterials and advanced technologies» in collaboration with Gdańsk University of Technology. Therefore, the students can obtain both Russian and international (Master of Science in Nanotechnology) diplomas.
