What should I be interested in so I could enjoy the Material physics and nanotechnology program?
You should want to understand materials comprehensively and be interested in physics and chemistry. In this study program, students with mathematical-analytical thinking also realize themselves better.
Can I enroll in Materials Physics and Nanotechnology if I haven’t studied physics or chemistry in 10-12 grades (last years of high school)?
Of course! We are chosen each year by students who have not studied physics or chemistry after 10th grade. Although this knowledge will be required during the study period, the physics and chemistry modules taught during the first year are designed to level the knowledge. The university also has tutors who help with more difficult modules, and the faculty has an S.O.S program, where volunteers help lower course students to understand subjects voluntarily. Therefore, in the first year of study, after putting a little more effort into the field that you did not attend at school after 10th grade, you will be able to study successfully in higher courses.
What is the difference between Materials Physics and Nanotechnology bachelor program and Physics and Chemistry Study programs?
In order to understand the material and be able to apply it in the required field, it is necessary to examine the material both in terms of physical and chemical properties, it is necessary to know how to design the material or design its construction to withstand it, and to be able to describe processes, taking place in materials, mathematically and programming them. Thus, this degree program is interdisciplinary, combining physics, chemistry, mechanics, IT, quality control, and more. Traditional study programs in physics or chemistry are more focused on one area, physics or chemistry.
What are the career opportunities after completing the Materials Physics and Nanotechnologies bachelor program?
Graduates of Materials physics and Nanotechnologies leave KTU prepared to work in various technology and engineering fields including nanotechnology, microelectronics, biotechnology, energy, manufacturing, aerospace engineering, quality control, data analysis, and the IT sector. Interdisciplinary training provides students with a variety of professional opportunities, including careers in research, consulting, and industrial research.
How is the study program grid structured?
During the study period, you will study theoretical lessons, practicums linking theory and practical tasks, and deepen your skills by working with laboratory technological equipment during laboratory work. Teachers use innovative teaching methods during lectures, such as problem-based teaching, project-based teaching, case studies, and more.
The study program is designed in a way that you get a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry during your first and second years of study. In the second year, you will start to study materials science through courses related to the basic properties of materials, as well as gain knowledge of engineering computer design and get acquainted with the application and selection of materials in various fields. In the third and fourth years of study, you will continue to delve into the fundamental properties of materials, the processes that take place in materials. At the end of the third year and in the fourth year, the focus will be on developing experimental and analytical skills through research, product development project, and a final undergraduate project. Students are also provided with knowledge and skills in professional communication, quality assurance, management, teamwork, idea generation, and economic literacy during their studies.
