Students are supposed to learn about the experimental techniques developed in the last decades, concerning matter manipulation and characterization at the nanoscale, and the laws and theoretical models that rule science on such a scale, as well.
As a fundamental transversal engineering subject it is also focused on the applications of that knowledge to the so called "nanotechnologies", in developing new products and contributing for the resolution of problems involving industrial innovation.
