Bachelor in Micro and Nanotechnology Engineering
LEMN aims at the formation of a scientific and technological base in the area of Micro and Nanotechnologies with an emphasis on the study of the structure, properties, production, characterization and application of materials and processes to the areas of microelectronics and nanotechnologies.
It is intended that the Degree in Micro and Nanotechnology Engineering:
I. Know and know how to use, in the appropriate context, the language and concepts of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Informatics necessary to acquire technical skills.
II. Know and understand the structural, physical and chemical properties of different classes of materials with a view to applications in the areas of electronics, microelectronics and nanotechnologies
III. Know, understand and know how to use materials and devices characterization techniques with particular emphasis on micro and nanoscale characterization techniques.
IV. Know and understand the Microelectronics process technologies and the production of Nanomaterials.
V. Know how to communicate effectively in an academic and professional environment.
VI. Know the organizational structure of companies.
The training given in this degree allows the pursuit of studies; mobility between training courses offered at the Faculty of Science and Technology and other Schools and employability in services and technical functions that do not require specific 2nd cycle skills.
Although technical skills are important, in the current context, and even in terms of employability, complementary skills (soft-skills) assume a preponderant role in this training. LEMN, like all courses at FCT NOVA, follows a new pedagogical approach known as “FCT Curricular Profile” (https://www.fct.unl.pt/ensino/perfil-curricular-fct). Essentially, the “FCT Curricular Profile” reinforces the technical-scientific training provided with complementary skills that provide the student with the tools that will influence his school performance and, in the future, his professional performance as a graduate.
The degree in Micro and Nanotechnologies, in addition to conferring the degree of engineering graduate, provides a solid scientific and technical training that aims to pursue more advanced studies in several areas of Science and Engineering, with emphasis on the Master in Micro and Nanotechnology Engineering.
Training in this area was launched by the NOVA SCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY | FCT NOVA in 2007. Since then, the demand for Micro and Nanotechnology Engineers has increased significantly, as a result of a highly technological training which gives graduates easy integration into the job market.

Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.
All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
