Double Degree Master Programs

Functional nanomaterials and advanced technologies

Location:                                           Kaliningrad, Russia
Start of education:                                           01.09.2021
Entrance exams:                                               July 2021

The Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (IKBFU) opened three novel interdisciplinary directions in master program in September 2017: http://eng.kantiana.ru/education/degree-programms/. Entrance exams – Basic Physics and English should be passed in the middle of July 2021.

The master program (Master of Science) Functional nanomaterials and advanced technologies is open for all international and Russian students with a Bachelor of Science degree (physics, chemistry, material sciences, cell biology or related programs). Three newly developed modules will train the prospective graduates in industrial, economical and scientific technologies that are internationally considered as among the most important ones in the future. State-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methodologies of nanotechnology and applications of nanomaterials will be learned. Graduates of this program are expected to easily find job opportunities at international and national companies and research institutions. The degree “M.Sc. in Physics” (Kaliningrad, Russia) is granted.

In frame of Double Degree Master Program the Master Students have possibility to obtain “M.Sc. in Nanotechnology” (Gdansk, Poland)

The program consists of 120 ECTS credits which are acquired over 2 years that start with one year of course work followed by one year of master thesis (MSc project) work in experimental or theoretical research or around startup projects. All courses will be taught in English. Based on their previous academic specialization, students can choose their master module, and the subject of their MSc project. Students of the different modules will have a strong interaction in selected courses fostering interdisciplinary understanding. All modules involve training programs in soft skill techniques.

During the first two semesters students will attend lectures, tutorials, seminars, problem solving sessions and laboratory courses. The first semester includes basic courses with lectures, seminars and a laboratory practicum – starting on 01.09.2021. In the second semester, each student will choose the module from three focused on: Biomedical Applications, Optics and Photonics, Industry Applications.

During the second year of MSc program students will perform research work in theory or experiment in a research team of IKBFU. The best students will have the possibility to perform part of their research for the Master thesis at other international institutes, for example: University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany; Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia; Istituto di Struttura della Materia (ISM), Rome, Italy; Riga Technical University, Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Microtechnologies, Riga, Latvia; Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague, Czech Republic; National Cancer Institute, Vilnius, Lithuania; Gdańsk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland and other.


During the educational 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020 years Specialists in their topics were invited to give lectures for Master Program “Functional nanomaterials and advanced technologies”. For example: Dr. G. Varvaro (ISMS CNR, Rome, Italy), Dr. S. Laureti (ISMS CNR, Rome, Italy), Prof. Dr. habil. R. Rotomskis (Vilnius University, Vilnius, Lithuania), Dr. M. Barthneck (RWTH, Aachen, Germany), Prof. Dr. M. Farle (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany), Prof. Dr. Y. Pankratov (University of Warwick, UK), Prof. Dr. M. Lapin (University of Technology Sydney, Australia) and other. Full list of lecturers can be found here.

During the course of the Master program students live in new dormitories.


Additionally, the best students are given the opportunity to receive an increased Scholarship.

The degree program concludes with the Master’s project in modern laboratories of IKBFU or our partners.
