All the of the BSc-level degree programmes of the III School of Engineering (except for Cinema Engineering and above all Physics Engineering ) provide an adequate curriculum for subsequent enrolment in the MSc programme in Nanotechnologies for ICTs. This MSc degree was the first to be activated in Italy on the important topic of nanotechnologies for information and communication technology (ICT), widely applied to complex engineering problems of various types. This field is destined to occupy an increasing part of development and production activities in the advanced technologies sectors, and brings an increasing degree of innovation in contemporary society. The MSc courses in Nanotechnologies for ICTs are all held in English and provide two different elective curriculums: the first is taught entirely on the Torino campus, while in the second a limited number of students also study at two other polytechnic institutes: the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. For both orientations, the curriculum provides important contributions in the field of advanced electronics and numerical analysis, as well as solid training in all areas of interest in nanotechnologies specialization.
The objective of both paths is to give MSc graduates a sound engineering culture and thorough preparation in the areas of material physics directed towards micro/nanotechnologies.

This training enables rapid adaptation to diverse business needs, preventing the risk of obsolescence in a field that is evolving quickly, and allows MSc graduates to orient themselves to the following professional fields:
- companies that design and produce devices for electronics, MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and nano-electronics; sectors of public administrations and service firms that apply innovative technologies for the processing, transmission and use of information;
- biomedical industries that produce and supply systems, equipment and materials for diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation;
- industries in the field of energy production and storage, and in the environmental sector;
- public and private hospitals, service companies for the management of medical devices and equipment;
- businesses, public or private bodies or institutions working in the field of monitoring the environment and quality of life.

Employment opportunities are very good because of the unique skills of this professional figure, who can find employment in numerous Italian and European high-tech industries.
The topics covered in the graduate course coincide with many of the qualifications of the latest European Union programmes. In the Italian National Research Plan, micro/nanotechnologies occupy a substantial and qualified part of the current strategic objectives. This means that nanotechnologies are and will continue to be considered a strategic sector in all advanced economies in the current historical moment.
The students from both the first and the second elective curriculum benefit from receiving training in English, since knowledge of this language has become crucial for working well and keeping up to date in the field of nanotechnologies and advanced technologies in general. In both orientations, students benefit from the particular multi-ethnic environment made up of foreign students who come from many countries around the world to enrol in this MSc course.

For the on-campus elective curriculum, the programme includes in-depth examination of solid-state physics and techniques for processing and characterising nanomaterials, advanced electronic and photonic devices, applications of nanotechnology, modern techniques for manipulating nanometric objects, integrated microelectronic systems, and computer-aided nanodesign.
For the second elective curriculum, the first semester takes place at the Politecnico di Torino, and is devoted to in-depth examination of the physics of solid-state and nanomaterials and techniques for processing and characterising nanomaterials. The second semester is held in Grenoble and is dedicated to nanostructures, nano-electronics and electronic microsystems, while the third semester takes place in Lausanne and concentrates on analog microcircuits and micro/nanosystems.
The final thesis work is carried out at the Politecnico or at external public or private institutions - national or international - with which collaborations have been established. For students from the first orientation interested in undertaking part of their activities abroad, there are agreements with universities in other countries to follow periods of study and/or undertake the thesis work in collaboration with local referents. In some cases there will be paths to obtain a double degree.
The MSc graduate designs, develops and uses micro/nanodevices and related technologies and is an ¿engineer of innovation¿, who can manage and design highly scientific and innovative products and processes in all areas of industrial and applied research based on micro/nanotechnologies. Along with providing a solid grounding in the most advanced aspects of electronic engineering, this degree programme offers a coherent set of specific skills in material physics aimed at optimising the materials and processes used to design all types of micro/nanodevices.
