Key Enabling Technologies - Structured - Research

The following are the six key enabling technologies:
• Photonics;
• Advanced Materials;
• Industrial Biotechnology;
• Advanced Manufacturing;
• Nanotechnology;
• Micro-/Nano-Electronics.

Europe's future competitiveness depends on how its future labour force can master key enabling technologies. This MSc programme provides hands-on experience to enable students demonstrate their research potential using key enabling technologies in advanced manufacturing.

1. Hands-on research experience on state-of-the art, advanced manufacturing test-bed incorporating both additive and subtractive processes, dependent on KETs.

2. Learn new insights in scalable innovation, value chain analyses, and laser enabled bio and electronic printing.

3. Demonstrate your research potential by applying KETs for pilot manufacturing of biomedical applications.
