Nanotechnology has a variety of applications in fields such as medicine, electronics or energy; therefore, in order to develop these important areas in the country, experts in the field are needed. Regardless of the major being pursued by the applicants, they need to have basic knowledge in physics and chemistry before applying to this branch. In the past years, topics such as solid state, nano electronics, microfluidics and quantum chemistry were developed in the internship. 


For more information on previous projects developed during the internship, please refer to the Magazine.
